About the Blog

This term, SMC will be launching a blog to provide an online space to discuss mental health in Cambridge. Our aim is to create a useful resource where people can come to read about mental health related subjects, and also get some tips that can help support your mental health at Cambridge.

The name of this blog is ‘Speak Your Mind’, meaning that the focus is on authenticity – we don’t want to shy away from talking about the reality of mental health issues, but equally we want to avoid being too unfiltered/triggering on the one hand, or risk romanticising/minimising mental illness on the other hand. Therefore, we’re aiming to keep the tone quite neutral, with the focus being on educational rather than personal content.
