  • Saturdays are weekend wrap-ups, a look at what’s going on in my world that week
  • Sundays are for blogging about blogging – there’s a directory of these posts on the Blogging & Writing Tips page.

Psychiatric medications

My book Psych Meds Made Simple has plenty of info about psych meds all in one place.

These posts draw on my training and experience as a mental health nurse and former pharmacist. 


Suicide

Suicide is a huge issue for people dealing with mental illness.  It’s important that we talk about it, and that conversation needs to address a range of different experiences with suicide as well as the need for more effective mental illness treatment to mitigate risk.

The MH@H Store has a free Safety Plan resource to guide you through planning ahead of time to cope when thoughts of suicide are getting bad.


Therapy

Besides the posts listed here, I’ve also done book reviews that cover acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), and other therapeutic approaches.  A therapy mini-ebook collection is also available from the MH@H Store.

Trauma

The Mental Health @ Home Store has a mini e-book PTSD Treatment Options: An Overview.


Work, workplace bullying, and mental health

I’ve faced negative attitudes at work related to my mental illness, and I’ve also experienced workplace bullying.  It’s important to talk about these things since they can be so isolating.
