  • learn more about the full spectrum of mental health
  • develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for those living with mental illness
  • seek appropriate avenues of treatment for themselves, if needed
  • encourage others to seek treatment and support
  • discover more about resources, innovations and new approaches to mental health that are available in our community
  • share personal stories and perspectives to reduce the stigma and subsequent discrimination that is often associated with mental illness

Blog submissions should meet the following guidelines:

  • Be written in easy-to-read, first-person voice
  • Suggested length for submissions is 500 to 850 words
  • We are looking for content that is original and not previously published in other media platforms
  • If possible, include a high-resolution headshot and brief bio that will be included


  • Include only information you are willing to share with the broader public. MHA-EM will share links to some guest blog posts through social media channels and in other communications platforms.
