Writers With Mental Illness

Start Here

Authors are twice as likely to die by suicide, according to The Atlantic.

Writers With Mental Illness is a blog and book service celebrating writers with mental illness.


Share your story, your writer tips and trickers, and be apart of the conversation on the blog. Then, browse through other writers’ stories. It’s important for all writers to have a group of like-minded people to share their troubles and triumphs, but writers with mental illness may especially find it hard to open up and make those connections. The closed online support group is a great way to start making these connections.


free marketing for indie authors

If you’re an author with mental illness, submitting your book to be featured in the book subscription service and discussed in the book club can be a great marketing tactic that guarantees sales and at least one book review. And, it’s completely FREE!

Sign up for the book subscription service to receive a surprise book written by an author with mental illness every month! There is an eBook option for $6 a month, and a paperback option for $12 a month. Patrons can cancel anytime, and all books purchased directly support authors with mental illness. All are welcome to join the book discussion.

Big thanks to Abby Whittredge, Daniel Watts, Emily Deibler, Jessica Lavallee, Carling Mars, Dyane Harwood, and John T. Dylan for supporting Writers With Mental Illness on Patreon!
