Stop The Stigma, Spread The Word!

936242_330965087033229_1639105091_nLike me, if you feel strongly about stopping the stigma attached to Mental Illness, and the way many of us are treated in society, here are some things that you can do…

  1. Enlighten others on the subject;
  2. Start a blog if you don’t already have one;
  3. To gather momentum and followers try some or all of the following:
    1. Join the Ultimate Blog Challenge, starting 1st July, to encourage you to write everyday;
    2. Join the Stand Up For Mental Health Campaign and display their button on your blog or website. You can also download their banners for Facebook, google Plus and a whole host of others, and display them on your Social Networking sites;
    3. Join the Blog for Mental Health Campaign and get on The Canvas of the Minds Blogroll;
    4. Join the Mental Health Writers’ Guild and display their button on your blog.

After all it is said that Sanity is just Insanity put to good use!

About D.J. Haswell

I battled with depression, brought on by stress, for 10 years. During that time, I made many mistakes, due in no small part to the fact that I perceived my illness as a failing on my part. It took me a long time, coupled with hindsight, to realise that I hadn’t failed in my life, but rather that the circumstance of my life had failed me. I started my blog to bring hope to those currently suffering from the debilitating effects of depression that there is light at the end of what may seem like an unending tunnel!
