Welcome to the The World of Mentalists blogroll! This is as comprehensive a list as is presently possible given the selection of sites we read and that have been suggested, but we always welcome new and as yet undiscovered mental health blogs (so long as they are not commercial in nature), so please do recommend yours or that of someone you follow in the comments section below if you’d like to be included.

Although some of the blogs listed on this page may provide advice, support or information on mental health issues, we strongly recommend that for such services you consult our list of relevant charities and organisations.

We hope you find this list useful and engaging. Please check back the odd time for new additions and further information.



2011 TWIM Award Winners ~ Mentalists ~ T3h Pr0f3ssi0nalz ~ The Art of Insanity ~ Inclusion/Exclusion Info

October 2012

Please note that I’m still in the process of going through all the blogs to check whether or not they’re active, and what they’re all about. I’ll be adding that information as an addendum to each blog title once I’ve collated it in its entirety. In the meantime, feel free to submit your own blog description (a very short one please – one line only!) by leaving a comment or, if you’d prefer to send it privately, please email me. Best wishes, Pan.

The Art of Insanity

Sadly, most of the mental health cartoon blogs we know of are inactive at the time of publication (October 2012). Please comment here if you are aware of any good animated blogs/websites in the arena that are regularly updated.

Inclusion/Exclusion Info

The World of Mentalists is not responsible for the content of external websites. Please see the disclaimer for more information.

You may notice that a number of the blogs listed above are no longer active. We have kept the links on the listings because we feel that the archives may be of interest to our readers. If, however, you spot a blog that has been privatised or deleted on this page, please contact Pandora or leave a comment at the bottom. We do not generally include privatised sites as they are inaccessible to most of our readers (the exception to this is to include such blogs under the ‘Award Winners’ section; it is only fair to acknowledge writers that have won TWIM awards, regardless of whether or not their material is still publicly available).

Please also comment here or email Pandora if your site is listed here, but you would prefer to have it removed. Please accept our apologies in advance if this is the case 🙂
