Minds Anonymous provides a safe space to share your mental health stories completely anonymously.
By increasing the understanding of mental health conditions we hope to abolish stigma.
A powerful story can change a life.
Let us share yours.
- The Black Dog of AddictionFor years it’s been hidden. Skulking in the shadows like some demented beast, kept on the leash of a linked chain and somehow content to be tied up. Until now. Now it’s fighting to break free with sharp teeth ready to tear my life to pieces… It began at 16. I had done fairly well in school and as such naturally gravitated towards the good doers and workers at college. It was painfully dull.
- RADIO: The Business of AddictionKirstie Barrett is ready to share her experience of recovery from drug addiction and trauma. She is here with Louisa “Wizzi” Magnussen to discuss the realities of dealing with temptations and triggers and share some of the information and tools that she’s learnt on her recovery journey. This is the Business of Addiction.
- SUPPORT: Writing for World Mental Health Day As anyone will know who has read my previous articles, I like to start by defining the subject about which I am talking and here I am, trying to define World Mental Health Day. I see little point in defining the four different words in this title as they are probably self explanatory so I am going to consider what we mean by those words, used together in this instance. My first thoughts are that the organisers are hoping to raise the profile of mental health across the world, a wonderful aim but I wonder if it is so large that it may lose any influence it may have, simply because it is too big, and could get lost because of its sheer size. If this is so, then perhaps we each need to consider what it means to us as individuals and how we can apply it to a global perspective.

COLLABORATE WITH US
We are looking for writers, broadcasters, illustrators, PR professionals and artists to help build the brand of Minds Anonymous and get our message of support and acceptance out there.
Minds Anonymous is an initiative set up to end the stigma that surrounds mental health, offer support to those that suffer and increase understanding of common and uncommon mental health conditions.
By sharing stories of real life mental health experiences, we aim to prove that managing mental health is simply part of being human. We may face individual challenges, but by learning about each other, we are in a stronger place to support one another.

I think there has never been a better time to do it. Lot’s of people are struggling this year and we’re not out of the woods yet.Minds Anonymous Supporter
I still think its mad that literally everyone I know has mental health issues of some kind and yet there’s still this feeling that we can’t be open about it!Minds Anonymous Supporter
