Each month we are encouraging our bloggers to write about a themed topic. October's theme is Motivating Yourself.

Share your thoughts/experiences with the SANE Community here.

We advise before submitting your blog to save your entry on a Word document - in case any technical issues arise. If you are experiencing issues, please email your entry to and we will moderate and upload it for you.

You are also welcome to share your experiences on our Support Forum. Join/log in here.

Remember, if you're in need of support, our confidential services are always here.
