Welcome to the first of its kind Discord community in which our goal is to provide a safe, anonymous, immersive, and experiential learning experience into mental health discussion.
This Kim Johnson, the Thought Founder of Grounds for Clarity. If you read my blog, you know I promote ideas that mean a great deal to me, and if I believe in something that could help me, I am willing to help a fellow sufferer. In this case, I want to help Kim, a Mental Health Skills Lifestyle Coach, fill her upcoming seminar this Saturday and Sunday.
James Edgar Skye (The Bipolar Writer) is collaborating with Grounds for Clarity on a new Discord Channel called Community Mental Health Discussions. It will be a place where you can come anonymously if needed to discuss the many topics that come with mental illness and mental health. Our goal is to have open-ended discussions that are open 24/7. Myself and Grounds for Clarity will be moderators.

Saturday I will be hosting a Zoom meeting at 2pm Pacific Standard time here in Sunny California. I will also be open to individual meetings throughout the day or in the coming weeks. Its a perfect time as we are still in shelter-in-place (with some openings in California) but my doctors are advising me to stay indoors anyway. How about it?
This time of year, some of April and then into May, I usually hit my stride. My Seasonal Affective Disorder, in association with the depressive side of being Bipolar, often finds its end. I come out of a cloud.

The requirements of the blog are simple. At least two blog posts a month, though you can write as much as your heart desires to my 14,000 followers. The content can be written work like poetry, stories, or your experience with a mental illness. All I ask is that the work stays mental health-related.
