To submit to This Space, or to find out more, you can email

This Space is entirely submissions-based, so we are always looking for new contributors, and we would love to hear from you! We’re interested in everything from poetry to prose, from personal accounts to scientific pieces, and from fine art to comics related to mental health. You can find out more about what we do here.

Submissions can be under your own name, a pseudonym, or anonymous.

All submissions go through an editorial process. We work collaboratively with our contributors, and we never publish any changes to their submissions without their consent. We will always publish in line with our editorial policy:

Editorial Policy

This Space will not publish anything that stigmatises mental health, or that presents personal experience as universally true. This is an intersectional space, and we acknowledge that mental health is affected by and can affect an individual’s relationship with the oppression(s) that they experience, such as racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, classism, ageism, (dis)ableism or any combination of these. As a space dedicated to destigmatising mental health, we cannot ignore intersecting oppressions that affect the way that people experience stigma surrounding mental health. We aim to represent underrepresented voices, and we will not publish pieces that discriminate against any marginalised group(s). We acknowledge as editors that we are limited by our own lived experiences, and as a result may overlook ways in which the pieces we publish go against our editorial policy. If we have published a piece which you believe contradicts our ethos, or is in any way harmful, please get in touch at

All edits are made in consultation with the contributor. We do not publish any changes to a submission without consent from the contributor.

This Space uses content warnings (CW) to denote potentially triggering content in each article. We hope that this will make navigating the site more comfortable for our readers, and will allow them to make a more informed decision about whether they are able/want to read each article.
