As a new mental health blogger I struggled with finding mental health writing prompts. I also noticed that there were limited mental health writing prompts for journaling– which made no sense. I have provided journaling prompts before to support your mental health and now I will like to provide writing prompts for blogging!
On different occasions, holidays, celebrations etc there are topics more popular than others. Fortunately, mental health encompasses a person’s entire well being, so it is sort of hard to forget or not research. There are individuals who struggle more during the holidays or on the anniversary of life events however this does not deter from the need to discuss the importance of mental health each day.
The reasons listed above are why I wanted to help out others specifically other mental health bloggers by providing mental health writing prompts. Mental health bloggers can also check out my Mental Health Blogger Guide for hints and tips to start a mental health blog.
