Today I thought I’d start a new tradition – “Mental Health Monday”. As my family could tell you many of my traditions fizzle out after just one time. But I think this one might just catch on. For however long it lasts, enjoy the ride.
“Mental Health Monday” will be a collection of some of the favorite posts I’ve found around the blogosphere (and perhaps some on the Web) on the general topic of Mental Health. Here are today’s recommendations –
“The Life Cycle of the Grad School Graduate’s job hunting for something in the Mental Health field” (The Neophyte Therapist) – A realistic yet humorous perspective on the stages of getting established in a mental health career.
“Relationship Issues” (Alexis Stone: Seeing in the Dark) – Alexis shares some very personal struggles impacting intimacy that are common to all, yet particularly true for those of us with mental illnesses.
“Anger, violence and mental health: a response to Deborah Orr” (Lady Lazarus blogs) An insightful and thorough analysis of the mis-conceived perception of the relationship between violence and mental illness.
