The Mental Health Writers’ Guild exists to provide a community open to all bloggers and writers who write pieces which are either directly or indirectly related to mental health and mental well-being and where the perceived focus of said pieces is not to intentionally bring sufferers of mental illness or poor mental health, their family and friends, or those working within this field, into disrepute.
The Mental Health Writers’ Guild exists to encourage: positive, informative, inspirational writing in respect of Mental Health. Doing so in the hope of ..
a) furthering a greater understanding of the issues and challenges relating to Mental Health and Mental Well-being.
b) addressing and working towards the reduction and removal of the stigma often attached to poor mental health and/or mental illness.
c) keeping people advised of any progress, research, developments or discoveries within the field of Mental Health and Mental Well-being.
