We’ve been asked on many occasions when we’re going to move into the
world of ‘Blogging’ Well here we are pleased to report that the MHS Blog has just been
launched and awaiting your comments and contributions.
The Mental Health Station website won’t be going anywhere for the foreseeable future, it’s been a
really useful vehicle helping us to promote positive mental health and well-being and we’re not ready to let this
dependable ‘friend’ go just yet.
It is likely that at some point we’ll be moving over to the Blog full time with a slow reduction in Mental
Health Station website activity and like everything MHS must ring the changes and move with technological
progress and developing the Blogging Station seemed the next step for us to take.
If you are a regular visitor to the Mental Health Station website you’ll notice that we’ve given
it a bit of an overhaul because although it heads the charts in terms of search engine success it seemed a bit
dated when placed alongside the Blog, so with its new look and fresh appearance it’s ready to help promote our move
from a static site into an interactive one.
