The Powys Mental Health Blog is featured in this week’s Media Updates. Laura Gallagher spoke to Cision about challenging the conventional ideas of mental health.
Why should people read your blog?
Because we want people to access a wider spectrum of mental health information, have an opportunity to ask questions, share learning, share ideas and join the debate that challenges the conventional ideas underpinning our mainstream understanding of mental health.
What’s the most important issue in your blogosphere?
We hope that this blog and the debate it initiates will form part of a paradigm shift in the conventional wisdom surrounding mental distress. This shift would start with us changing the question that underpins the mainstream mental health thinking from, ‘what is wrong with you’ to, ‘what has happened to you?’
What’s your favourite blog and why?
The TED Blog because the content is about sharing ideas and asking questions about every topic you could imagine.
How often do you aim to post?
How do you feel about guest posts?
We welcome them as long as they are relevant to our target audience and fit in with the aims of the blog. We try really hard to get people to contribute but I suspect that people see the word blog and get put off.
