  • Sundays are for blogging about blogging (scroll down to see a list of these posts)


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 is not OK

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



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.


Therapy (CBT, DBT, etc.)

Work and workplace bullying

I have 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.

Writing can be a valuable therapeutic tool in dealing with illness, and it’s an important way of challenging stigma.
