Hey I decided to update the useful websites and therefore have added a page which I will regularly add to. This page will give you websites and pages where you can find information about mental health. This information could be from campaigns to medication to living with a mental illness and anything else that looks useful or cool.
The first site I have for you is the Facebook Page for this blog. www.facebook.com/MeandMyMentalHealthMatters This Page is for updates to the blog, along with some cool pictures and quotes and any interesting articles or pieces of news. If you like the Blog go and give us a like on Facebook.
Another useful website is www.mind.org.uk which is the website for the charity Mind. They do lots of good work in the UK, campaigning for different issues related to mental health. They also have a blog on their site, which I have contributed to in the past, and I know they welcome would be bloggers. Another reason this site is useful is that it has a mass of information on what you should expect from your mental health professionals and information about different disorders and treatments.
Time to Change is another useful site to take a gander at. http://www.time-to-change.org.uk/ is a campaign to end the stigma surrounding mental health problems. They do a lot of good work and offer opportunities if you wish to get involved. They again have a blog so keep your eyes peeled for that.
The next website is www.rethink.org the website for Rethink Mental Health. This charity runs many campaigns and is a partner of Time to Change. They also have a lot of information about living with mental illness and information for carers and families.
