We’ve had the opportunity to launch a number of new blogs this month, which I’m excited to share with you today. These new blogs join an existing group of fantastic bloggers — the best group of bloggers on any site! If you want fresh, real perspectives of mental illness, psychology and mental health issues, Psych Central remains a one of the shining outposts in the online wilderness.
I’m honored to welcome three great new bloggers to our blog network: Brian Cuban, Gabe Howard, and Amanda Knapp. Margarita Tartakovsky has also begun a new blog on creativity with us. We hope you check out the blogs below and welcome the new bloggers to Psych Central!
Gabe Howard was a 2014 Mental Health Hero, so we’re honored to welcome him to blogging on Psych Central with his new blog, Don’t Call Me Crazy. First diagnosed in 2003, he’s become a mental health activist, professional speaker and writer. We’re happy to have him join us, writing about the experiences of living with severe bipolar and anxiety disorders.
Our next blog is not from a new blogger, but one of our long-time contributing editors.
Everyday Creativity is a new blog from Margarita Tartakovsky, MS (she also writes regularly for this blog, as well as her own on body image, Weightless). Margarita was excited to dig deeper and explore the roots of creativity, and helping people explore their own, everyday creative sides. We can’t wait to see what she shares with us.
Life with Anxiety & Depression is the new blog from Amanda Knapp. Amanda is a writer, a mother, a wife, and someone who struggles with both anxiety and depression. We look forward to reading about her experiences with these concerns in juggling all the demands of everyday life.
Last, we’re proud to welcome Brian Cuban to the Psych Central family with his new blog, Cubanity: Brian Cuban’s Recovery Rantings. Brian is the author of the book, Shattered Image: My Triumph Over Body Dysmorphic Disorder and will be sharing his experiences with Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD). BDD is a disorder where the person is preoccupied with a distorted sense of self-image — often accompanied by eating disorders, depression and addiction.
