It’s time for the May Health Writing Challenge, and this month we’re writing about mental health. There are many different types of mental illnesses, and many have similar symptoms and treatments.
I hope you find this challenge useful and interesting!
You only need to complete one micro writing task a day for May. Do as many challenges as you can throughout the month, and feel free to share your results with your health writing friends and me!
Remember that just a bit of writing every day helps you improve and feel more confident.
