Creating Mental Health Content For Your Blog

At one point in their lives, everyone will experience issues with their mental health. For some it’s a short struggle; for others, it affects the quality of their life.

Creating mental health content can be beneficial for the content creator, and can provide comfort for the creators audience. Mental health can leave a person feeling isolated, and seeing someone else go through a similar experience can be comforting.

This is only one positive aspect of sharing mental health content.
In today’s post, I’ll be sharing examples of what mental health content you can create if you’re short on ideas.

Share Tips On How To Help A Person Who Is Struggling!

Despite how common mental illnesses are, there is a detrimental stigma surrounding them. One of the most prevalent being “it’s all in your head”. Statements like that do more harm than good. In some cases, people will say things like that without malice, they just don’t understand.

You could write a post educating people on better things to say. For example, instead of saying “people have it worse than you do”, or “think positive”, you could replace those phrases with “do you want to talk about how you’re feeling?”, or just offer helpful solutions to their current situation.

Talk About Your Experiences With Therapy!

Unfortunately, going to therapy has become associated with being “weak” when that could not be further from the truth. It takes an immeasurable amount of strength to realise that you need help.
Life can get the better of us, and talking to a therapist is such a therapeutic experience. Advice from an outside perspective is also beneficial because we often tend to miss the bigger picture during a tough time.

Sharing your experiences might just be the nudge that a person needs to seek out their own therapy. It’s a little less scary knowing others in a similar situation have sought help.

Share Your Tips For Getting Through A “Mental Health Day”

These kinds of days can feel as if you are navigating a minefield, they just take it out of you. It is important that we take care of ourselves to avoid exacerbating negative feelings. Of course, self-care and the extent of what is needed will vary from person to person, but it doesn’t mean you can’t share what works for you.

Who knows? It could help someone! For example, I find having a hot drink incredibly comforting!
