My Favourite Mental Health Bloggers #2

My Favourite Mental Health Bloggers #2 mental illness wellbeing blogs UK help support advice

A while back, I did a post all about my favourite mental health bloggers, which I think went down pretty well with you guys. You can read that post here. There is way more than five mental health bloggers that I LOVE though. We are a little community that is ever growing. Which makes me so happy. I know it's not for everyone, sharing the most intimate details of your life online, but the more we do it especially about mental health, we are gradually breaking down the stigma and normalising mental illness.

Which is bloody fantastic, I'm sure you will agree! What I love about the mental health blogging community is how diverse it is. There are so many different people, from all walks of life. We have all united because of a passion of ours; spreading awareness of mental health. We use all the negative experiences we have been through and battles with mental illness in a positive way. To show people it is okay to not be okay. 

It annoys me that the mental health blogger community often gets overlooked. As soon as a major famous blogger or Vlogger opens up about their mental health ( which is great, don't get me wrong), They get a tonne of press, which is fine but there is hundreds of everyday folk who share their stories and don't get a look in. Which is why I'm sharing another five of my favourite mental health bloggers today! Make sure you check them out!

1. Mike

Mike, runs Mike's open journal which is not only a blog but a podcast. Wayyy!!! You get two for the price of one. Mike suffers from depression and uses his blog and podcast as an open space to talk about his thoughts, feelings and topics surrounding mental health. What I love about Mike is how honest and just hilarious he is in all of his posts and on the podcast. Spoiler alert he is also as funny in real life. Mike now covers a range of lifestyle topics on his blog, which are equally as insightful. I love having the podcast on in the background when I'm doing work. Mike has had a range of guests on his podcast talking about all sorts of topics from self-harm to music and mental health. Definitely worth a listen/ read if you want to learn more about mental health in a relaxed way.

2. Meg

Meg is honestly one of the kindest and most loving people I know. Meg runs the blog; Be Kind To Your Mind. Which can I just say, I LOVE the name of! Meg battles with OCD, GAD and panic disorder. Meg uses her blog as a way of sharing her experiences of mental illness, educating others and reducing the stigma around mental health. All of which I am about! I am an avid reader of Meg's blog especially her personal experiences with OCD, as that is a topic very close to my heart. Meg doesn't just stop there, She also sells Be kind to your mind wristbands where the profits each month go to a different mental health charity. I think this is such a lovely idea and reminds me I need to order mine right now!

3. Bethany 

I haven't known Bethany for as long as I have some of the others in the community but she has already become a very close friend of mine. Bethany writes the Blog Adventure and anxiety where she covers travel, lifestyle and mental health content. Bethany has an MA in psychology ( which is pretty amazing if you ask me) however, due to debilitating anxiety has struggled knowing what to do with her life. What I love about Bethany is how open and honest she is about her mental health, how it has affected her life and how she copes every day. If you are looking for an easy to read, down to earth and honest blog about mental health, look no further than Bethany's.

4. Jodie

I found Jodie, through her outstanding work with Time to change. She has done a few blog posts, for Time to change about the importance of being in your mate's corner and for Time to talk day, both of which I had the privilege of being part of. Jodie is a very passionate mental health campaigner and advocate, which is evident in the hard work it takes to organise so many people to come together and share their experiences. These kind of blog posts are invaluable to sufferers, like me and so many others. Jodie writes honestly and openly about a range of topics including; self-care and BPD. As well as being a fantastic blogger, she is an incredibly supportive, kind and understanding friend.

5. Rich

Rich has always been there for me, especially when I was first diagnosed with OCD. His Youtube videos and blog about his own battles with OCD helped me understand what I was going through. I don't think I could ever be more thankful for that. Rich, blogs and vlogs all about his struggles with OCD but also more lately how he is beating and overcoming this debilitating illness! So proud of you Rich! *Air high five* Rich has done some amazing things for the mental health community, from appearing on TV to being the chair of OCD Youth, a panel of young people ( including myself) trying to shape the way society sees OCD. His dedication to ending the stigma around mental health never fails to impress me!

  12. Hi Nicole,

    First of all, I want to thank you for running this helpful and informative blog about mental health. You know it's imperative to talk about mental health. We must take care of mental health, and involve in such activities that could improve our mental health.

    The bloggers you've mentioned are great and doing great work. A few days ago, I read a few posts by Mike, and I was really impressed with his approach.

    Moreover, I'm following Laura's blog too. She is an incredible writer and her articles about mental health and self-care for parents are just awesome.

    In my opinion, food has a crucial role in maintaining good overall health and mental health. If our diet plan consists off more fresh fruits and vegetables, then chances of keeping good overall health would become double.

    Fresh fruits and vegetables contain Mediterranean Diet components which are helpful for mental health.

    A few months ago, I was reading about the health benefits of moringa oleifera. Moringa is a miracle tree with antioxidant properties which makes this food an excellent choice to improve mental health.

    So consuming the moringa oleifera powder is good for boosting your mental health. Moreover, this is not good only for mental health but also for:

    Lowering blood sugar level
    Lowering cholesterol level
    Boosting stomach health
    Liver health
    Bones health
    Reducing joints inflammation
    Boosting the immune system

    In short, moringa is known as a miracle tree because it's incredibly beneficial for various health issues.

    I must say that eating organic food is always better and useful for keeping perfect overall health.

    Anyhow, thank you again for writing about mental health. I wish you loads of success.

  13. It's a pleasure for me to write this testimony about how i got my Genital Herpes cured a month ago. i have been reading so many comments of some people who were cured from various diseases by Dr .Hazim, but i never believed them. I was hurt and depressed so I was too curious and wanted to try Dr. Hazim , then i contacted him through his email when i contact him, he assured me 100% that he will heal me, i pleaded with him to help me out. My treatment was a great success, he healed me just as he promised. he sent me his medication and ask me to go for check up after 21 days of taking the medication. i agreed with him i took this medication and went for check up after 21 days of the treatment, To my greatest surprise my result came out  negative after the treatment, I'm very happy that i was cured and been  healthy again. I waited for 3 weeks to be very sure if I was completely healed before writing this testimony. I did another blood test one week ago and it was still Herpes negative. so i guess its time i recommend anyone going through Herpes, HSV-1 or HSV-2, HIV, HPV, Hepatitis B, Diabetes, Cancer, ALS  to contact this great man through his Email ( OR add him up on whatsApp  +2349058026857Thanks Doctor Hazim Usman
