Write for the Blog

By telling your stories and sharing tips and advice you can help show other students that they are not alone, recovery is possible and you can still succeed at university despite experiencing mental health difficulties. Together your experiences can change attitudes, reduce stigma and create positive change in mental health.

We share blogs that:
  • Are written by students or recent graduates 
  • Give tips on how to tackle different challenges at university
  • Talk about personal experiences of mental health difficulties at university
  • Review the latest news in mental health from a student perspective
  • Give advice on how to talk to friends - whether supporting a friend who's struggling, or opening up about your own difficulties
  • Are from a range of writers, we particularly encourage blogs from men, BAME and international students as they are underrepresented on our blog and across the mental health sector

Before submitting your blog please read our Blog Messaging guidelines and find out how to submit a winning blog post. Once you have written a blog please click the button below. If you want to share your story but you are not yet sure what to write about or have any further questions please check out our FAQs or email blog@studentminds.org.uk.

Postgraduate students:

Postgraduate students can often experience unique mental health challenges and support needs. That's why we are shining a light on your postgraduate student experiences. 

From the 16th of December 2019 to 16th of January 2020, we will be launching a #PostgraduatePressure Blogging Series all about navigating postgraduate life. If you have experiences of managing your mental health and wellbeing as a postgraduate student, we would love for you to write for us, please share your storm via the form above. Together, we can amplify the postgraduate student voice on mental health! 

Below are a couple of examples of what you may choose to write about, but we will welcome submissions on anything that impacts your experience as a postgraduate student:
  • Managing multiple and challenging project demands
  • Dealing with setbacks
  • Maintaining a work-life balance
  • Meeting and socialising with other students
  • Navigating a healthy working relationship with your supervisors
  • Financial or future career anxieties
  • Email blog@studentminds.org.uk if you have any questions or want to discuss what to write about
