The Student Minds blog is the biggest blog in the UK dedicated to student mental health and university life. We believe students should have a place to speak up about their experiences of living with mental health difficulties and show others that they are not alone.
If you're a student, or recent student, with an experience you want to share, or tips on how to deal with the different challenges that uni life brings, we'd love for you to blog for us, or even join our team of regular bloggers.
HOW TO BLOG FOR US
Make sure you read our blogging guidelines before sending us a blog post.
We accept one-off submissions as well as regular article submissions. If at any point you have a draft you'd like us to see, e-mail our blog manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have an idea for your blog, but aren't sure exactly where to take it or how to structure it, e-mail email@example.com! Our blog manager manages a growing team of bloggers and publishes all submissions after edits - so it might take a day or two for us to get back to you.
