Jade Marie is a twenty five year old Mental Health blogger based in not-so-sunny Sheffield. She can usually be found with a cup of tea in one hand, and a good book in the other.
I’ve always known I wanted to be a writer, but the “how” didn’t happen quite like 5 year old me imagined it would. I’ve been lucky enough to spend the last three years doing what I love; educating people on the realities of mental health, talking about my own struggles and helping to inspire people with my personal journey.
Some of the topics I cover are anxiety, depression, social issues and self care…
Lots and lots of self care!
My posts aren’t aways easy reading; I’m very honest about both the good and the bad aspects of my life (what do you mean overshare?!), so that people can see the realities of living with mental health conditions.
My style has been described as, ‘witty, sarcastic and refreshingly honest.’ I have a very different view on life due to being autistic, and if I had £1 for ever time I’ve had someone comment that they “hadn’t thought of [something] that way before”, I’d be retired somewhere in the Caribbean right now!
In October ’18 my blog was nominated for a UK Blog Award in the Mental Health category.
I’ve spent the past year giving interviews (including one for Refinery29) creating my own mental health resources for my shop and even dipping my toe into the world of YouTube.
That one was a scary experience!
Plans for next year include a range of eBooks, finally offering my oracle deck to buy on my store, and starting my own Podcast about mindfulness and, you guessed it, self care.
I’m not always so predictable I swear.
If you want to get in touch about a collaboration opportunity, you can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
If you don’t want something quite so formal, then you can always drop me a message on Twitter or Instagram – my handle is @itsjademarie on both!
(Please note – I do not accept guest posts on my blog, and due to the high volume of emails I get about this, I will no longer be replying to these emails)
I do accept gifted and sponsored content on my blog, but only if it is a product I genuinely love and would buy myself. These will always be clearly labeled, and any links within those posts will be no-follow only in line with Google’s guidelines. I will also occasionally use affiliate links, which will be clearly labelled with an asterix (*). These won’t cost you any extra money, it just means I’m given a small amount of commission on every sale to help pay my bills. My bank balance thanks you in advance!
No part of my blog, whether that be images, text or graphics, can be replicated or used under any circumstances without my written consent.
Thanks for stopping by! I’m a twenty-five-year-old digital media graduate with a passion for writing and a desire to change the way we view mental health and autism. I’ve owned jademarie.co.uk for nearly two years now, and its slowly changed from a place where I would brain dump whatever was going through my head that day, into a place where people can come for help, advice and hopefully a bit of a laugh. I do occasionally come out with a witty sentence or two. Mostly by accident.
