Blogging as a aid to recovery – How has it helped you?

Hi everyone

It’s official, amongst everything else I do, I am a Tutor for the RLC (Recovery Learning Community).

I will be teaching my first course, “Blogging as an aid to recovery” on the 18th and 25th of November and 2nd of December.

The RLC provides a range of educational, practical and creative courses, for students with mental health difficulties and their family and friends who support them.

I will be teaching students how to start a blog of their own, that they can continue to use after the course has finished.

I will be teaching students how blogging can make them to feel better and improve their quality of life through:

  • Building online relationships and friendships.
  • Communicating with like-minded people.
  • Improving communication skills.
  • Building confidence and self-esteem.
  • Giving them something to focus on.
  • Giving them a sense of purpose and a reason to get up in the morning.

Plus loads more fantastic reasons.

I would love for my students to know how blogging has aided your recovery. Please leave a message in the comments section so that I can share your story with them.

Thanks in advance.

Stay positive.

Sandra  Bellamy

  1. Hi Sandra. Not many comments on this brilliant idea. Blogging is very therapeutic and can be addictive. Personally I love it. I have met some wonderful people, all supportive of whatever medical condition one has, or loss of pet, or whatever. Ute visited me through blogging and maybe next summer I will be meeting fellow bloggers in the States. Just typing up a post with a problem helps and to get even one response is great possibly from a person with the same problem which can lead to private emails and friendship. The only thing I suggest is to have a balance between heavy and light posts. People don’t like whining but love real life and how you are trying to overcome whatever your problem is.
    I hope that helps my friend. Ralph xox 😀


    1. Hi Ralph

      Thanks for your comments. I will print this off for my learners to read and re-post this post so it is at the top.

      It is great to hear about what can be achieved through blogging. Keep up the great work.
