Nominations for TWIM Awards 2012: Recognizing the Very Best in Mental Health Blogging

I just discovered this amazing project that honors and promotes blogs that focus on and raise awareness of Mental Health Issues. There are several blogs that come to mind for several categories:
• Cate’s blog, Infinite Sadness or Hope,, about living with Borderline Personality Disorder, amongst other things, falls into both the Best New Blog and Personality Disorders Categories. I have learned much, expanded my horizons, and received much encouragement and inspiration through reading the words of this brave and determined woman.

Black Box Warnings,, established and hosted by Eric Robillard, social media genius and creator of Le Clown On Fire,, is also a dual category entry: Best New Blog and Other. Black Box Warnings was born of his family’s dealings with an ADHD diagnosis and subsequent medical issues and concerns with judicially mandated medication. It has grown into a beautiful and inspiring community of bloggers who contribute their experience, strength and hope in living with and moving through things like post-partum depression, eating disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and a cornucopia of mental health issues and concerns.

There are others I intend to nominate, as well. I have ten more days to do so. I will likely do a full post with all of my nominations as soon as I can get to an actual computer instead of doing it all via mobile phone finger pecking on a tiny touch screen.

The World of Mentalists

It’s coming up to that time of year again. Every year we hold an online contest to recognise the very best in mental health blogging.

In two categories, this public vote will decide the winner. Of the remaining categories, the three with the most nominations will go through to a judging panel. Pandora will be introducing our judges to you in the next few days. The winners will be announced on New Year’s Day 2013.

The categories that will be…
