Submit A Post!

Susan reached out to Young Minds over two years ago. She wanted to share her experience with mental illness to inspire others and end stigma. Ever since Susan’s been a regular guest blogger on our Community Voices segment. She’s also grown into a powerful youth advocate.

At Young Minds we believe that sharing the real stories of young people like Susan is essential to improving the mental health system for young people. Our blog is a space for YOU to share your story or to highlight why you think mental health matters. It is a place where your voice is powerful and your perspective matters.

Ready to share your story?!

To submit a story, please do the following:

  • Take a look at our guidelines for guest bloggers.
  • Fill in the basic contact information in the form below.
  • Upload your post (400 – 600 words). Don’t forget to include a title.
  • Upload a photo to include with your post.
  • Fill in your “Author’s Bio” (1 – 4 sentences describing yourself).

You will get a confirmation email that your submission has been received. It may take time for your post to be published. We appreciate your patience. If you have any questions please email ALL first-time submissions need to be submitted via the form below. However, if you’ve submitted a post in the past, and it’s been published on our blog, you can submit your newest post directly by emailing

Please note that we do edit posts and their titles for length, clarity, and other editorial guidelines determined by Young Minds Advocacy. If significant changes are made our staff will run them by you before posting. We take great care to ensure we never misrepresent the voices or messages of our guest bloggers. If you have any questions about this policy, please reach out.

Unfortunately, we can’t publish every submission that we receive due to our small (but mighty!) editorial team and other limitations.
