GoodTherapy.org works to advocate for ethical mental health treatment and reduce the stigma that surrounds mental health every month of the year; however, May has specifically been deemed Mental Health Awareness Month by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Every May, GoodTherapy.org and many other like-minded organizations host events, work diligently to disseminate reliable mental health information, and collaborate with members of the public, professionals, and organizations to shed light on the importance of mental health awareness and treatment.
For the second consecutive year, GoodTherapy.org is inviting its readers to blog about mental health to honor Mental Health Awareness Month. This blogging event is an opportunity to reach out to mental health bloggers and writers to have their writing featured on GoodTherapy.org and shared with our thousands of site visitors. The 2014 blogging event resulted in many participants sharing why mental health mattered to them; we are looking forward to continuing to spread the message that message across the web!
Beginning May 1, GoodTherapy.org will compile a list of qualifying blog posts related to mental health below. You can tweet us @good_therapy with the hashtag #mentalhealthmatters to submit your post, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Finally, post the “I’m Blogging Because Mental Health Matters” seal on your web site or blog to help raise awareness of this important issue. Simply copy and paste the seal below into your blog or post!
It is our goal this and every month to bring together a community of like-minded advocates all passionate about reducing the stigma surrounding mental health, providing support, increasing knowledge about the important issue of mental health, and spreading the vital message that mental health matters. We hope you join us in our efforts to help create real change in mental health!
