On May 16th, the American Psychological Association is hosting this year’s Mental Health Month Blog Party.
Pssst — that’s tomorrow! (Or today, depending on what time you stumbled upon this post.)
Anyone with a blog can join. Here are the details:
Join us on Wednesday, May 16, and publish a post on your blog about mental health’s importance, how we can diminish stigma, or the challenges of making lifestyle and behavior changes. Tell your story. Share your experience. Mental health affects everything we do. No matter what you regularly blog about, there’s a way to incorporate mental health.
I’ll (hopefully) be recording my very first personal video to share my thoughts on mental health, anxiety, and blogging about it all.
Here’s why I said hopefully: about an hour ago, I sat down on my back deck — a lovely, green, and very mentally-healthy space for me — to record the video. Simultaneously, my neighbor decided to start pounding a shovel on his concrete walkway while blasting political talk radio from a stereo aimed in the general direction of my deck. If he doesn’t resume this strange activity in the morning, I’ll try again.
For more details about the blog party, visit the APA’s Your Mind Your Body website.
Also, follow hashtag #mhblogday on Twitter.
What would you like to contribute? Your personal mental health story? A story of struggle? Of success?
And don’t forget: if you post about mental health tomorrow, let the APA know so that they can share your post. They’re on Twitter at @apahelpcenter.
