Guest posts

Mental Health @ Home pop-up guest blogFrom time to time, guest bloggers who don’t fit the criteria for the emerging blogger series will make an appearance on MH@H.  Past pop-up gues blog posts include:

 

Psychiatric medications

These posts draw on my training and experience as a mental health nurse and former pharmacist.  My book Psych Meds Made Simple has plenty of information about psych meds all in one place.

 

Pseudoscience and Science

Pseudoscience masquerading as legit science is a huge pet peeve of mine, so I like to rant about it sometimes.

 

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.

On the Mental Health @ Home Store, there’s a Safety Plan resource to guide you through planning ahead of time to cope when thoughts of suicide are getting bad.

Travelling

Travelling has long been a passion of mine, and sometimes I like to write about it.

Work issues and workplace bullying

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