Blogging for Mental Health

You asked and we have made this blog page available! Are you new to blogging and asking what will that do for me? Well there is a long standing history that writing helps in the recovery process. Additionally blogging allows us to begin a conversation with our peers and receive peer feedback.


Do you need to get something off your chest? Have you found something helpful in your recovery journey? Looking for peer advice or support on a given topic? What's your story? 


OK so now that you have something in mind now what? Send your blog to executivedirector@namiofhancock.org. Make sure you include your first name that will be posted with your blog. Then viola! Once your post is approved it will be up in 24 hours for peers to weigh in on the topic.
