The Blog for Mental Health Campaign

So I was reading Freshly Pressed stuff when I happened on Alice‘s interesting blog. Then going through her posts, I came upon a particularly important one: Blog for Mental Health 2013.

As she says there, “I don’t just blog about mental illness.  More like you can just kinda tell I’m nuts by reading what I write.  That’s another thing people don’t realize.  So many artists, writers, and other creative people suffer from this stuff.  I’m not sure what the connection is, but I do know that if we don’t hold out a life line, we’re going to lose some of our most gifted people, and the world will be less than.”

Here, she talks about A Canvas of the Minds, a blog with amazing campaign that has bloggers writing for people suffering from mental illness, most of them, if not all, sufferers themselves.

I think this is a very worthy endeavor so in my own way, I am sharing this information to you. Why don’t you read Alice’s post first then go visit the campaign’s official blog? Maybe you’ll find kindred spirits there 🙂
