Mental health begins at home – and by home, I mean your home base, your centre, your place of strength and support.

Welcome to Mental Health @ Home!  This blog takes a no-holds-barred look at a variety of issues related to mental health, drawing on my dual perspectives as a mental health nurse and person with major depressive disorder.  You can get to know me a little better in the “About” section.  My social media links are at the bottom of the page.

You can find all of my posts in the “Blog” section, and in the “Blog index” you’ll find links to some of the recurring series/themes I’ve done.  Check out my “Resources” section to get links to useful websites and apps, including sites where you can submit your own stories for publication.

I’m a strong believer in speaking up against stigma, and in educating ourselves so we can make the best possible choices around managing our illnesses.  Together, we’re a force to be reckoned with.  I’m excited to have you join me on this journey!
