If you’re reading this blog it’s likely because you’re interested in learning about mental health, or relating to someone who is going through the same things as you. I spend a lot of time reading posts from different mental health blogs, as it’s nice to get a different perspective and to see what other people do to get through the day-to-day with a mental illness.
I’ve listed below 8 mental health blogs that I’d recommend you follow, as well as my favourite posts. Enjoy!
