Anxiety & depression are cruel mistresses, and they target a lot of creatives, some you might even know. Let's gather to talk about how to survive it together.

#HoldOnToTheLight is a blog campaign encompassing blog posts by more than 100 fantasy and science fiction authors around the world in an effort to raise awareness around treatment for depression, suicide prevention, domestic violence intervention, PTSD initiatives, bullying prevention and other mental health-related issues. We believe fandom should be supportive, welcoming and inclusive, in the long tradition of fandom taking care of its own. We encourage readers and fans to seek the help they or their loved ones need without shame or embarrassment.
