A few of the websites, organizations, and supports that I have personally found helpful in my experience with mental illness and the struggles of life in general. Also stuff I just really like. I’ll be updating and expanding this page … sometimes.
Part blog, part platform. The blog hosts a number of regular contributors and guest writers, and focuses on stories of struggle and triumph with mental health. One of my faves.
“To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.”
An online community focused on all things mental health. Launched by Kati Morton, a licensed therapist, the site acts as a virtual support group, designed for anyone struggling with mental heal issues, or anyone who knows another person struggling. Group forums, online chat, YouTube videos, FREE downloadable workbooks and worksheets, and links to other resources. AWESOME community.
“We’re here to support each other.”
A blog by Glennon Doyle Melton* on … living. In this world. As we are. With grace and love and humor and strength and bravery and compassion. NOT JUST FOR MOMS. I am not, have never been, and have no plans to become a mom. I LOVE Momastery. I love Glennon. Love, love, love.
“Momastery is a worldwide online gathering place for people who are tired of making life harder by pretending it isn’t hard. Our rules have been the same for almost ten years: Be brave enough to tell your story, be kind enough to let others tell theirs. … Like a monastery, Momastery offers an alternate, kinder, truer, braver way to live in the world. Join us. Everybody’s In, Baby.”
