Straitjacket Writers is a collaboration of love from several writers and editors, mostly from

The purpose of this website is to allow authors to have a safe (and when desired, anonymous) space to write about their feelings and struggles. Some authors have been very open about their own battles with mental health-related issues. Others, while they want to write and discuss it, don’t feel comfortable with having their information public. We welcome both.

Our hope is that authors and readers alike will be able to discuss these issues in an open way. One of the biggest problems with mental health today is the decades of stigma that have accumulated on the social conscious of our society. By talking about these issues and addressing them openly, we hope to help change some of that.

Comments must be approved before being published, and we will not allow baseless argument or attempts to discourage or harm the psyche of others.
