Did you know that May is Mental Health Awareness Month?

If you are an author who experiences mental health issues who would like to share how this impacts you professionally and/or personally, then please download The Mental Muse questions and instructions.

Because like Socrates said: 

“The unexamined life is not worth living.”

Did you know that May is Mental Health Awareness Month? So it seems a great time to kickstart my new meme. This is a Mental Muse post and you’ll see one of these here every 18th of the month (so long as I have willing participants of course). I want to spread awareness of mental rather than physical afflictions because it’s ridiculously common yet still so stigmatised.

The stigmatisation of mental health over physical means sufferers experience not only the illness, but also the isolation and stress of trying to keep it to themselves.

Isolation is a Big No-No!

This months ‘brave and bold’ is …me. Seemed fitting to go first so click the link to read my insight into being an author with bipolar disorder. I have June’s, July’s and August’s B&B posts scheduled.

Who’s next? You?
