Please submit your article to support blunt-therapy.com. You are well advised to contact our editor first at the same address with your article pitch. Please note that all posts are subject to an editorial fee. Sponsored posts must be relevant to the topics included on Blunt Therapy, be well-written, and must be original.
We’ve researched payment rates, found submission guidelines and/or contact information for all of these listings. In the case of deadlines, there are really no deadlines for sending us an article proposal. However, the sooner you start, the sooner you can have your presence as a writer. As someone who knows the shame that can fester as a result of silence and misinformation caused by mental health stigma, I am glad to learn about these resources. We recommend you write your submission in easy-to-understand language. Try to adopt the ‘you’ voice and keep sentences short for ease of reading.
With regard to the theme of an article, we like to leave this up to the author to suggest. Perhaps ask yourself ‘what is particularly resonant in my work/life at the moment’ or is there a theme that you feel strongly you’d like to write about, and others to read? This can be a societal/cultural matter, an article that offers really practical guidance on a specific issue, or something you feel needs to be highlighted, for example. Because therapist.com covers a wide range of topics in mental health and human behavior, we’re open to authors of all backgrounds, specialties, and therapeutic modalities.
Look at your writing time as personal relaxation time. It’s a time when you can de-stress and wind down. Write in a place that’s relaxing and soothing, maybe with a cup of tea. And know that you’re doing something good for your mind and body. One payment report indicates payment of $0.49 per word for a news story of about 1,200 words.
Our content does not constitute a medical or psychological consultation. See a certified medical or mental health professional for diagnosis. Psychreg is known for being an easily digestible read, so articles will need to be around 500–1,000 words.
Your guest posts mean a lot to us, and so should they to our readers. That is why they should be educational, research-based, valuable, and interesting. The articles that you will be sending us should be completely original, meaning that they have never been published anywhere else before, neither on your blog nor anyone else’s.
For example, you may notice symptoms get worse at a certain time of day, when you’re under stress, or when you’re in a challenging relationship. If you know your triggers, you can avoid them in the future. Journaling helps you take an active role in your treatment.
Expressing yourself in a journal can bring your thoughts and feelings to the surface. Many people are surprised by what they write, says Denver psychotherapist Cynthia McKay. You may discover you’re worried about something you didn’t know was upsetting you until you wrote it down. For most her life, Christina Suchon has lived with depression.
We cannot accept articles which are advertorials or which are written in order to sell a product or service. As you will discover, many of the posts we publish relate to mental health issues experienced by former and current military personnel. These issues typically include substance misuse, depression, anxiety, PTSD and the need to re-adjust to civilian life.
At all possible, we strive to publish first-hand accounts of how mental health problems impact current and former military personnel.
