Write for CHAI!

Did you follow our guest blogger, Shamyla’s, Award Winning Happiness Project Blog last year?  Were you one of the people that read and enjoyed some of our most highly visited guest blogs like Queer Ragas – Coming Out, Coming Together or The Parallel Universe Where My Brother Lives ? Have you ever wondered about contributing something to our blog?  We’d like to hear from you!  Below is a list of the awareness topics that CHAI has chosen to focus on, educate around, and promote throughout the year and we’re looking for our next guest blogging experts.  If you have a story to share about one of these topics, personal, professional, or otherwise, please send us an email.  We’d love to hear from you!  CHAI takes a holistic approach to providing proactive, culturally competent information and referrals on mental health and wellness to the South Asian population. We work collaboratively with communities and service organizations to end stigma and increase access to mental health services.  One of the ways we carry out this mission is through breaking the silence in talking about mental health.  Break the silence with us and tell your story, we’re all ears.

We are accepting submissions NOW for ALL months!  Don’t wait to send us an email, an idea, a snippet, or a whole blog!
