Writers Write creates writing resources for writers. We are sharing this infographic on mental illness to help you with research for your stories. 

Before you write about a mental illness, do extensive research. Try one or two of these:

  1. Writing about Mental Illness
  2. How to Treat Mentally Ill Characters When Writing a Novel
