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 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.



Mental Health @ Home Store Therapy mini-ebook collection




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


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.


Blogging about blogging

I’ve been blogging since 2017, and I’ve picked up a few things along the way that might be useful to other bloggers.

For more step-by-step info, the Mental Health @ Home Store has a free how-to guide on Building a Blog From the Ground Up, and a free inside look at the business plan.



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