Hope Rising I began this blog to chronicle my journey with mental illness. Through blogging about my experiences of living with schizoaffective disorder and post traumatic stress disorder, I hope to spread hope and awareness to those living with mental illness. My blog is from a Christian standpoint, but I speak on topics that are applicable to everyone. http://www.hoperisesafterthestorm.com -

It's All in Her Head: Women Making Peace with Troubled MindsTop Rated It's All In Her Head is a group of blogs written by women who discuss their mental health issues. Who better to let other women know how to deal with their own mental health issues?
While giving other women support, writing these blogs helps to help the women who wrote them themselves. Writing is great for a person; man or woman, and getting emotions out that may have been locked inside is always a great idea.
Kudos to these women for doing so, and here's hoping by reading these blogs, you get some help and comfort you may need as well. http://itsallinherhead.com -

Monica Pignotti, MSW One of my current professional missions is to bridge the Scientist-Practitioner gap that currently exists in the mental health field. John Riolo has written very eloquently about this problem elsewhere on psychjourney. I became interested in this issue after having been extensively involved with Thought Field Therapy (TFT) for seven years. One year ago I severed my ties with TFT and its Founder because I could no longer stand by the unwarranted claims that were being made.
In addition to debunking, I am also very interesting in understanding more about the reasons therapists choose to use these methods in their practices. It has been my experience that most of these therapists are well-intentioned, but something has been missed in their training that they did not learn about the existing empirically supported methods (or, for some reason choose not to use them). Another question I've been exploring lately is what, if any, differences exist between these clinicians and those who choose to use the scientist-practitioner model. http://site.monicapignotti.org/ -

Stacy's FlutteringsTop Rated Stacy's Flutterings blog is written by a mother who has a daughter who lives with bipolar disorder. The blog provides personal insight, credible resources and a new page dedicated to mental health advocacy. One of the goals of the blog, at this time, will be to provide insight into the world of mental health advocacy. The hope is that in addition to helping others, going through a similar experience, I will be able to provide them with the tools to advocate for their loved ones. The most recent blog post focuses on suicide prevention, and links are provided to connect families with govtrack.us regarding a bill currently in legislation, the Care for Your Mind website and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. I hope Psych Central finds the blog worthy of being listed as a resource. Thank you for the opportunity to submit my blog. It is greatly appreciated, and I look forward to hearing back from you. Sincerely, Stacy King http://stacysflutterings.wordpress.com/ -
