I'm honored to have been chosen to write for HealthyPlace.com.
(PRWEB) November 21, 2013
Tanya J. Peterson, MS, NCC, has expanded her mental health writing. She has joined other mental health experts and consumers at HealthyPlace.com and will co-author Anxiety-Schmanxiety, their weekly blog that addresses all aspects of anxiety.
Peterson, who is credentialed as a Nationally Certified Counselor and is herself a mental health consumer, writes in a variety of ways to increase understanding of mental health issues and create empathy for those who experience them. She also uses writing to help people equip themselves with tools for maximizing their mental health.
Adding HealthyPlace.com’s Anxiety Schmanxiety blog to her repertoire is something that will help her reach out to a great number of people. HealthyPlace.com is the largest consumer mental health site, which means it is a reputable, resource-rich website that millions count on for reliable information. “I’m honored to have been chosen to write informative articles about the many forms of anxiety, its impact, ways to manage it, and other anxiety-related topics.”
Peterson writes in other ways, too. She uses novels that portray aspects of mental illness. “Fiction is powerful,” Peterson explains. “When people connect with characters and develop compassion for them, they often transfer that to real-life human beings.” Her most recent novel is Leave of Absence.
Additionally, she writes articles for NAMI Lane County, her local chapter of the National Institute of Mental Illness, and she has co-authored an article for NAMI National. Further, she has been quoted in various articles, both print and online, addressing mental illness and mental health.
Peterson also speaks to raise awareness of mental illness. She presents in such diverse venues as national conferences, libraries, bookstores, and behavioral health centers/hospitals.

Peterson will be the co-author of one such blog, titled Anxiety-Schmanxiety.
