Blog For Mental Health 2014 – fighting stigma together

The aim of the Trauma and Dissociation project is to increase the information on Trauma and Dissociative Disorders online, in order to take away the fear of the “unknown” and fight the stigma of mental health disorders.

Blogging for Mental Health in 2014

Blogging for Mental Health 2014

We started blogging in September 2013 and this year we’ve joined A Canvas of the Minds in blogging about mental health. Here’s our pledge for 2014:

I pledge my commitment to the Blog for Mental Health 2014 Project. I will blog about mental health topics not only for myself, but for others. By displaying this badge, I show my pride, dedication, and acceptance for mental health. I use this to promote mental health education in the struggle to erase stigma. from http://acanvasoftheminds.com/2014/01/07/blog-for-mental-health-2014/

The Trauma and Dissociation Project

Our project started in January 2013 with an information website about Dissociative Identity Disorder, and in March we began the larger site which was edited and reviewed collaboratively, until Oct 2014.
Since November 2014 our new website has been available at http://traumadissociation.com and as the name refelects, this covers all the Trauma & Stressor and Dissociative Disorders.
The website is written based on academic sources, primarily books and journals written by experts in each field.
Our social networking projects also share some personal experiences from different people affected by the disorders – either personally or from the view of professions working in mental health.

  4. I want to cry for many reasons after reading this… One of them is actually joy… Joy to have it written out so clearly! 3.5 years into trauma therapy and I pray I just finished working through the worst of it. It was hard to process… but each thing I processed brought a new level of freedom into my life when it was done. I cherish the freedom I have found so far, and I look forward to more!!!
