Welcome to Mental Health @ Home by Ashley L. Peterson!
Mental health begins at home – Your home base, your centre, your place of strength and support.
This blog takes a no-holds-barred look at a variety of issues related to mental health.
It draws on my dual perspectives as a mental health nurse (and former pharmacist) and person living with treatment-resistant major depressive disorder.
The goal is to raise awareness about mental illness, educate around a wide variety of mental health issues, and create a community where people can feel comfortable speaking openly about mental health without fear of judgment.
I post weekly mental health book reviews, often featuring books by fellow bloggers.
Check out what’s new in the Mental Health @ Home Store!
I’m also a contributor to the upcoming book The Silent Scream, an exciting project by Maria Alfieri.
I write on several sites besides MH@H – details are in the About section.
I’m a strong believer in speaking up against stigma, and in educating ourselves so we can make the best possible choices.
Together, we’re a force to be reckoned with.
Let’s Stop Stigma! I’m excited to have you join me on this journey!
