Shattering Stigmas: Mental Health in Literature – Welcome and Giveaway!

October 2, 2017 books, psa 14

Welcome to the third round of Shattering Stigmas! You might have heard of this event before, or you might be new to it this year, but basically Shattering Stigmas is all about mental health, literature, and the fabulous readers, authors and bloggers involved.

Dealing with mental health issues can often be an isolating experience. The stigmas surrounding mental health can keep people from looking for help and confiding in the people close to them. As the name suggests, this event exists to shatter these stigmas by talking about mental health in general and mental health representation in literature in particular.

The lovely Shannon from It Starts at Midnight came up with the idea for Shattering Stigmas three years ago, and it’s still going strong. This year Shattering Stigmas is taking place at It Starts at Midnight, Of Wonderland, Stay on the Page, The Fox’s Hideaway, Flipping Through Pages (youtube, yay!), and of course here.

So what can you expect during the event?

– Well, first of all there’s a giveaway! Each of the hosts will be picking a winner – I’m giving away a mental health book of your choice up to 10€/12$, INTL as long as book depository ships to your place.

– Secondly, there will be guest posts! I’m very excited that a number of authors and bloggers have written fantastic posts I can’t wait to share with you.

– Of course you’ll get some book reviews and recommendations!

I’m not going to be posting daily (because when do I ever) but you can expect updates a couple of times a week. Do make sure to check out the posts on all the other blogs/vlogs, because we all have unique content and guest posts for you to enjoy. Let’s get started!

    I followed along with this event last year and I am so happy to be able to do so again this year! It is always so wonderful, refreshing and most of all eye opening when it comes to the subject. Thanks so much for being part of it and always helping bring awareness to shattering stigmas about mental health!
