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. Stay connected with all the latest blogging news and opportunities by signing up to our newsletter or by joining our student bloggers Facebook group.

Topic inspiration…

This winter, we are interested in hearing experiences of the following topics:

1. Do you feel supported by your university during the pandemic? Why/why not? What could be done differently to improve student experiences at UK universities?

2. Do you have some tips for remote exams? How do you look after yourself over the exam period? How do you keep yourself motivated to work at home?

3. How are you supporting your friends and/or maintaining friendships during lockdown? 

4. Have you done any campaigning or fundraising for Student Minds recently? Share your ideas on our blog to inspire others!
