If you want to write about your experiences.  Here is our how to guide.


Your blog doesn’t have to be long, between 600 to 800 words.  This guidance is around 230 words.


You may want to structure it in the following way:

If you are a practitioner:

Describe briefly what kind of service and/or organisation you work for.
Tell us about the problem and challenge.  We suggest you focus on one thing.
Tell us how you solved it.

If you are a service user:

Tell us about your situation.
Tell us the problems you are facing.
Tell us how you are managing to cope, what’s helping and what’s not helping

Advice and guidance

Once you have sent us your blog one of our article editors will review it for you and will provide you with advice, to help you shape your piece so that you can get your message across in the best way.
