Seeking mental health guest bloggers!

When I started thinking about reopening Bonkers, I fully intended for it to be a platform from which not only could I write about my own life stories, opinions and the like, but also raise awareness about mental health conditions. However I’ve been struggling to write any pieces without them feeling like I’m just regurgitating symptom lists or things that I’ve learnt through my masters! I’ve been wracking my brains for the past few days to think of a solution, until I finally had a EUREKA moment in the shower just now. Guest bloggers! What better way to raise awareness of what particular mental health conditions are and how they effect people, than by having someone who actually lives with those conditions say what it feels like and how they experience it day to day!

Right now, I only have a few ideas for posts, but I’m hoping that once I’ve got back into the swing of things then ideas will come a lot easier to me. For now though, I’m just going to take it as it comes and focus on gaining some momentum.

I guess I should tell you a little bit about myself before I get to work on writing some REAL content!
