In the blog project Blog for Mental Health 2012, a summons went out to all mental health bloggers. In this summons, Blog for Mental Health 2012 asked mental health bloggers from all reaches of the world with any diagnosis (es) to take a pledge. This pledge was the following:
I pledge my commitment to the Blog for Mental Health 2012 Project. I will blog about mental health topics not only for myself, but for others. By displaying this badge, I show my pride, dedication, and acceptance for mental health. I use this to promote mental health education in the struggle to erase stigma.
Today, hundreds of mental health bloggers display this badge proudly on their sites. They raise their voices as individuals to remove the shame of stigma and promote education, awareness, and advocacy for mental health disorders.
Today, I am making preparations for the new year. As we all know, 2013 is fast approaching. In order to get a head start, I have decided that I would release the Blog for Mental Health 2013 badge and pledge prior to 2013, so that others may get a lead on spreading the good word.
However, this year I am asking for audience participation. And what better way to promote community participation for a community project than by presenting this on a community blog!
This year, there are several different badges to choose from. I would like the public to take a vote, already started at Sunny with A Chance of Armageddon, if you want to take a look at some standings. Some are similar, since several suggestions have already been taken into account for the badges. If you have any additional suggestions for swapping of lettering and backgrounds, feel free to ask for a sample.
