Write Mind is our client newsletter, written by staff, volunteers and people who use our services.
It’s a mix of news about what we do and articles about mental health and wellbeing suggested and written by our clients. By publishing these stories, we hope more voices can be heard and that stigma surrounding mental health is reduced. Everyone is welcome to submit ideas for content and copy and we have trained journalists on hand who can help develop ideas for articles and give advice about writing.
Our next edition will be published on Wednesday 12 August to mark International Youth Day, and will focus on children and young people’s mental health. We want to give others a true and personal insight into the mental health problems that young people have been facing recently.
We welcome varied content from wellbeing tips and messages of support to longer, feature-length articles and creative writing. You may want to write a short piece about your mental health and what services or tools have helped you, especially during the pandemic, a poem, or even a photo depicting how you are coping with their mental health and wellbeing. Submissions are sometimes edited for legal and layout purposes and are usually no longer than 800 words. They can also be printed anonymously. Please do contact us if you would like to discuss any ideas.
We will also publish an edition in October to mark World Mental Health Day.
