There will also be authors and mental health professionals dropping by with guest posts and interviews! And of course, there will be GIVEAWAYS too :D
|The psychology symbol, in case you were wondering what was up with the funky "t" in my Psychtember button.|
Just a small disclaimer I wanted to make right off the bat: I know that mental health issues can be a sensitive subject for some people, so I wanted to point out that my posts are never intended to offend. No, I am not a mental health professional, just someone with a Bachelor's degree in psychology and a passion for the field. I may get things wrong from time to time; if I do, you can always send me an e-mail about it! Also, I am not responsible for the content of the guest posts for the event — I don't like to censor so I have largely left the posts up to the writer's discretion.
My first guest blogger will be dropping by the blog later today, but I thought I'd start things out with a short survey...just to see how much you guys know about mental health before the event gets rolling! No, this is not a test. I'm just interested in seeing some general perceptions of these kinds of issues. And I tried to make it fun! :D
There are no "right" or "wrong" answers, and if you don't wish to answer a question, feel free to skip it.
I'm interested to see what the trends are in these responses, and hopefully I'll be able to show you guys the results with fun pie charts and things! :D
Also, I would like to note: if you or a friend/family member is experiencing psychological distress, I recommend seeking out a mental health professional. This event is not meant to replace that type of help.
