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.
We welcome varied content from wellbeing tips and messages of support to longer, feature-length articles and creative writing. 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.
Our latest edition marks World Mental Health Day (10 October) and focuses on the World Federation for Mental Health’s theme of ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World’. It also encompasses Mind’s theme of ‘Do One Thing’ and features an additional pull-out with all the small things our team do to fight for better mental health.
Our next edition will be published on Monday 17 January to mark ‘Blue Monday’. To submit articles, please send them to [email protected] by Friday 24 December.
