What Do You Write in a Mental Health Journal?
The whole goal of a mental health journal is to track your mental health and jot down your thoughts and feelings. This can mean a variety of things for different people, but let’s look at the common things seen in a mental health journal:
Answering journal prompts about their mental health (which you will be doing shortly, yay!);
Treating it like a diary and venting about their daily thoughts and feelings;
Doing therapy exercises and keeping track of their progress;
Drawing how they feel.
This is just a list of common things people use their mental health journal for, but there are many other ways people journal. And that’s your business.
REMEMBER: A journal is usually private. You don’t have to share it with anyone, and you can use it whatever way you see fit.
