Benefits of a Mental Health Blog

Blogging for mental health has become a popular option for many people. A mental health blog provides many benefits for both the blogger and readers, some of which are listed below.

Processing Thoughts, Grief, and Stress

Life is tough. It’s full of ups and downs, twists and turns, and everything in between. A mental health blog can help the writer — and readers — process these things. From traumatic events to normal daily challenges — venting helps. And knowing that someone else out there is experiencing the same things can keep one from feeling completely alone.

Share Insight and More

Not everyone has mental health struggles or knows someone that does. Without this personal experience, it can be difficult to relate to those that do. A mental health blog, however, provides a platform to share experiences, support, encouragement, and insight. It does not matter if you have been clinically diagnosed with a condition or simply need a way to deal with daily stress. A mental health blog can provide the answer.

For these reasons and more, I started my blog Tommy Talks. It’s a safe place to share struggles and gain encouragement to make it through this journey we call life.
