World Mental Health Day Roundup 2011Our very 1st annual World Mental Health Day blog party was a huge success, with over 80 international bloggers who participated by writing about mental illness and mental health treatment. You can see all of their entries here.

I was humbled by the response.

Within those entries, you can find the whole range of human experience. You will find heart-wrenching personal stories from more than one person. You can find a reminder of the deadly impact of mental illness in society and an insight into how spirituality plays such an important part in most people’s lives. After all, what does it mean to be mentally healthy?

You can even learn how to investigate your emotional family history to help you better understand where you come from psychologically.

There are dozens more great entries in our list; this was just to highlight the wide breadth of entries we received. I enjoyed reading them all, and getting more from them that I had ever thought possible.

I think you will too. (Check them out now.)

Thank you to all the bloggers who participated, and thanks to you for reading and helping us celebrate World Mental Health Day!

A special thanks, too, goes out to our Blog Managing Editor, Jessica D., for helping to keep the list updated throughout the day!
