Emily’s Mental Health Resources

Posted Oct 19 2010 8:00am

This is Emily’s second day with us as the Mental Health Blogger of the Week.  If you have not check out her wonderful site Surviving Limbo , you really should.

I really got a lot out of what Emily shared with us on Monday.  The reasons for our diagnosises  may be different, however, it appears she and I share similar manifestations of symptoms. Not only that, but I discovered we live in the same state.  It is comforting for me to get to know someone that I already have so much in common with.

Today, Emily shares her favorite mental health resources with us.  Please take the time to check out at least a few of the sites she has listed.  There are some real gems.

1.   Untypically Jia -  I think you know her.  She has OCD.  She’s so wonderfully quirky.  She will make you smile no matter how bad you feel.
2. No Points For Style –  Mother of a child with mental illness.  She gives a different perspective about how mental illness affects the entire family.  She also uses humor a great deal.
3.   A Daring Adventure – Free life coaching.  I love the cartoonish pictures and his very “daring” or brutally honest look at different topics.
4.   Depressions and Confessions – alexis had PPD as well as at least one major depressive episode.  her writing style is unique.  she reminds me of e e cummings
5.   Dr. Deb – A professional psychologist whose posts often surprise me such as her latest about Therapy Service Dogs.  I didn’t know such existed.
6.   Violence Unsilenced – Survivor stories.  Very emotional.  Very disturbing.  But it’s the truth.
7. Psychology Today – This site has a variety of blogs, all of which I have found useful.  They’ve got it covered.
8.   PsychCentral – Like Psychology Today, they have multiple resources.
9.   NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) – Mental health advocates, and another source of information.
10. Sugar Filled Emotions – I’m not always as vocal as I should be, but Melissa is a fellow Georgian with similar illnesses to mine.  She works very hard at educating people through her blog and a Twitter newspaper.
