Minds Unleashed

A collection of poetry by people with a Mental Illness & their Carers 

I compile this collection of poetry, which through such a creative medium, will open your eyes, impact you with its WOW factor and pull at your heart strings. If you have always wanted to share your talent and expression as a poet, now is the time to do so.


Minds Unleashed is distributed for free to Carers, Consumers, Educators and Clinicians, in hope of increasing awareness and reducing stigma surrounding mental illness and it would benefit greatly from your poetry.


Minds Unleashed continues to be updated as new poetry is received. Several Universities, TAFE’s and Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s) use this collection as a course resource, providing access to first hand insight of the lived experience of mental illness.


Submissions are welcomed on an ongoing basis. It is preferred the submissions are in reference to personal experiences with Mental Illness. So get your creative juices going and share your insights and talent.


We are currently accepting recommendations for Mental Health Coping Strategies & Techniques, and Australian Online Supports, Research Study Sites, Treatments & Therapies, Apps, Courses and Lived Experience Books. Please fill out the submission form below, and once we look at a suggested inclusion, we will add them to our site.
