    This was a great idea. I read all of the blogs and I’m going to comment on them if I can keep up! Let’s take down the “zone of silence” around mental illness.

    Good idea! I am delivering a talk at Nottingham’s Cafe Scientifique meeting this evening – and blog and write on themes around every day mental health, as an occupational (not clinical) psychologist. My blog (and details of my recent book on the same theme, Keeping Your Spirits Up) can be found on http://www.creatingfocus.org.

    Mental health isn’t just about dealing with mental illness – it needs to be actively nurtured for all of us in the same way that our physical health does…

    I loved being able to write for this cause. Thank you for hosting the blog party! It is so encouraging to read about all of the other people who are also trying to spread awareness about mental illness and help eradicate the stima surrounding it.

    Thanks for hosting this blog party and linkup! It has been very good for me to participate. I’ve been reading all the entries as well; wonderful, honest, and helpful! So great.

    I sent two entries and only see one listed: did you get the separate one I wrote for www dot mothersofchange dot com ? I have two separate blogs I write for, so I wanted to be sure my largely separate readerships were aware of this important day and the linkups!

    Thank you again for hosting this, it was great to be able to participate.
