During the last half of 2012, we started working on a mental health project at HealthyPlace that we hope will initiate some real change. We'll be announcing the details on Monday morning at 9 am CT, 10 ET. If you subscribe to our newsletter, you'll be getting an email. We'll also be talking about it on our social sites; Facebook, Twitter and Google+. We hope you'll not only check it out, but once you learn about the project, you'll want to join us and participate.
With the new year, we're also introducing a new blog. It's called the "Your Mental Health Blog." Each week, we'll have a new guest author talk about a different aspect of mental health. You can read more about the "Your Mental Health Blog" here. And if you're interested in being a guest author, you'll find the details on the blog.
What are your mental health goals for 2013? We invite you to participate by commenting and sharing your feelings, experiences and knowledge on the HealthyPlace Facebook page.
