We are always seeking articles from leaders in the field of mental health to inspire and educate our readers. These articles range from practical advice on a specific topic, to general reflections on the relationship between a career in medicine and suboptimal wellbeing. In order to overcome the mental health issues we face as a profession, it is vital that we give a voice not only to students, but to the wider medical community.

We are very fortunate to have received articles from a number of leading experts in the field, as well as from students and doctors from around the world. These guest articles are hugely important to the success of our online campaign, as it provides for a variety of perspectives on mental health issues that medical students can relate to. The AMSA Mental Health Campaign actively promotes our guest articles to students through the use of our social media channels (Facebook and Twitter), as well as through the AMSA Blog and Mental Health Campaign website.

These articles do not have be long (approximately 1 – 2 pages) but are ideally relevant to medical students and doctors, and their wellbeing. They can be written on any aspect of mental health and medicine – how to maintain a social life outside of the hospital, 10 steps to looking after yourself, how to survive night shift – whatever you are passionate about!

If you have a particular topic of interest and would like to write an article, we would love to hear from you. To submit an article, please contact us at mentalhealth@amsa.org.au or using the contact form here.
