Please help us identify mental health blogs

Mark Dombeck, Ph.D. Updated: Jun 17th 2008

a computer keyboard with the enter key labeled Recently Mental Help Net began adding a new type of link resource to our database - covering mental health blogs related to our topic centers. Blogs are a growing presence on the Internet, and a great source for a variety of information related to mental health, mental illness and wellness. Various blogs we have linked to offer informed news and investigative reporting, running commentary, and personal stories laid out in journal format detailing people's struggles with mental illness and life issues.

Though we have identified a number of relevant blogs on our own, the Internet is a big place, and it seems likely to us that we'll miss some gems unless we enlist your help.

If you read (or write) a blog that is related to one or more of our topic centers, we would very much appreciate it if you would let us know about that blog, by making a comment below. In your comment, please include the name of the blog you are submitting, the Mental Help Net topic center you think best fits this blog, and a very brief description of what the blog is about.

Please do not create live links in your comment submissions! Instead, please only post the relevant URLs as text. We make this request so that we have a chance to visit and review each blog before linking to them.

Thank you very much for your help!
