It's All Cerebral

ABOUT us

It's All Cerebral is a mental health blogging duo out of Atlanta, Georgia. We are not doctors. In fact, we are just a couple of preschool teachers who happen to have much experience with mental health issues. We'd like to share our stories, provide mental health-related information and resources, do our part in fighting stigma, and, perhaps most importantly, help people know they are not alone.

Meridith, in addition to being a teacher, is a freelance writer specializing in mental health issues. She has bipolar disorder and ADHD. She has four children, two of whom are touched by mental illness. Stephen, 15, suffers from depression and Andrew, 12, was diagnosed with major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder at the age of nine, but his updated diagnosis is "unspecified mood disorder".

Annette is passionate about teaching small children, horseback riding as a form of therapy, and mental health issues.  She has experience working with special needs children and has an adult son who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when he was very young.

Together, we hope to spread mental health awareness and acceptance!
