Welcome!  My name is Ashley Leia Peterson, and I blog under the username ashleyleia.  Mental health plays a huge role in both my work and personal life.  I’m a mental health nurse and I also have major depressive disorder, for which I’ve been hospitalized multiple times.

I’ve chosen to share my own experiences to raise awareness about mental health issues and combat stigma.  The more we talk about mental health issues the better – on so many levels.  It is the strongest weapon we have in the fight against stigma.  Let’s start this conversation!

I’m the author of Psych Meds Made Simple, which is available on Amazon.  This will be the first book under my Mental Health @ Home Books imprint.  You can find more of my writing in my writing portfolio.

You can also check out my Media kit.

You can also find me in various nooks and crannies on the Internet including:
