Hello, my name is Clara! This is a blog that I run alone, not for profit or for any organization whatsoever. I simply started this blog because I think it’s important to keep having non-judgmental and kind conversations around mental health.

Currently, this blog posts anonymous interviews that have been edited down for clarity or anonymity. They have not been edited to tell a specific message that the interviewee has not made themselves. Sometimes, because of length, one person’s story may be split into multiple posts. All posts have the potential to be triggering or have offensive content. Opinions stated by the interviewees are not necessarily shared by About Mental Illness. Trigger warnings are included and all stories are from people that have stated they were 18 or older. Every name used is a pseudonym.
