Creative Mental Health
‘Tackling stigma through creative sharing’
We are always on the lookout for artists to share their work with us and the world :0)
Are you a Creative person? Have you ever suffered mental ill health?
We want to know about it and share your story with the world! Your story could make all the difference to someone.
Are you a writer? artist? poet? photographer? Just you!?Whether you consider yourself an artist or you just play around for fun, we want to know.
We are creating a forum that openly discusses mental health and how creativity can aid our peace of mind and express emotions and perceptions through art of all forms.
We also like to lighten the read with a short story or comic reel that does not have to link directly with mental health. We have our ‘capture it’ page for a photo that sends you a calming feeling. Designed to create a sense of warmth and enjoyment to lighten what can sometimes be a collection of quite dark expressed emotions. We like stories of recovery and stories to inspire our readers and we also like realness and gritty truths. Its all about balance, just as life!

The Creative Mental Health Guide is a quarterly publication that is also available as a pdf document download. The publication is completely free to view online, but for us to be able to keep up with the costs of running this site we do ask for a donation for the pdf document download and we also sell advert space that appears across our site.
The magazine is sent out to a growing number of subscribers and across social media. It is a free online resource open to anyone, with the aim of tackling stigma and creating open dialogue to discuss mental health. This is a charitable project so all submissions are voluntary, but we are happy to promote any blog /website, or work you do by adding your links and details to the page. You can also publish events to our calendar!
To be able to continue this resource we have developed a website that allows you to submit your work straight to the website from your seat at home in minutes. This means that it takes less time for our editors to pull the Guide together, who work for voluntary on this publication, and, it’s a pretty cool function! :0)
We can display Soundcloud music files by short-code, embed videos from Youtube and display your art work in such a professional and visually pleasing way you will be very happy with the release. We will also send you a pdf document copy and front cover image for you to keep.
Once you have created your account you will need to request additional rights by filling in the form at the bottom of this page, you can use our Help pages if you need some guidance on how to use the site (if however you are really struggling to submit your work please get in touch). Please also leave us feedback on the navigation and ease of use so that we can keep improving the site, thank you.
