As for topic, we are open to ideas, and happy to discuss yours with you. The basic rule of thumb is, if its therapy or mental health related and important or interesting to you it's probably interesting to others. Tell your story, share your experience, engage and inspire!

We are looking for articles and reviews that inform, entertain, inspire, challenge, engage and empower; promoting self care, mindfulness, wellbeing, positive mental health and engagement with Therapy. We welcome submissions in the form of narrative; explorative articles and blogs; the sharing of experiences and knowledge from a personal or professional perspective. Your piece will be written in an informal narrative, which to us means to write as if you were speaking to a friend. Using your own inflection, tone and style. We want to share your voice, your words and showcase your knowledge and experiences. We are also happy to accept submissions in the form of illustrations, art, cartoons, caption pieces, poetry or fiction. We look for pieces that are topical, mental health or therapy related or simply human!

Your Stories (Being Human)
We’re all human and for most of us life isn't simple. It can sometimes feel like a never ending cascade of troubles and challenges. Dealing with the challenges of mental health can leave us feeling confused and isolated, but knowing that others have experienced these too really helps. Share your experience and what’s helped you along the way. We all need a little hope in our lives.
