Unfortunately, The Mental Health Creative will close on March 31, 2024 and is no longer accepting new members.

Close up of a woman but she is looking through her open hands and you can see very little of her face. There are sparkling lights interwoven between her fingers.

Seems everyone these days is overwhelmed… depleted… torn in too many directions… sound familiar?

But how do you want to feel? You want to feel gooooooood. I know. You want to feel purposeful, intentional, present. You want to feel aligned, connected and honest.

The Mental Health Creative is a collection of powerful workshops, evidence-based resources and like-minded good people. We’re all looking to feel better, to invite more flow, love and meaning into our lives.

In The Creative we do that with truth, with care and with each other.

Join us in our monthly Writing for Well-being workshop to tend your mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Feel supported outside of the workshop with our Private Podcast: Creative Musings, and Private Facebook group to connect with the community.

“Once a month, in the company of like-souled people— by which I mean people who similarly long for wholeness of being and gentleness of purpose— I get to practice the writing equivalent of a drink of cold water on a hot day.  Parrish guides us intuitively with prompts that offer space to feel, process, and synthesize what matters most in the moment. I highly recommend her and the community of The Mental Health Creative.”

What can you expect from the monthly workshops?

 

The Writing for Well-being workshops are time and space for YOU to show up for yourself. Following my thoughtfully designed journal prompts, you will be led through an introspective experience to support your emotional and mental wellbeing. Attend monthly and build a self-care habit that supports deep healing and soulful connection.

No writing experience is necessary to participate in these workshops. I make it easy, I promise! The workshops are LIVE, monthly and 60-90 minutes in length. They are also recorded for those unable to attend live.

Scrabble tiles spell MAGIC PLEASE. There are small sparkly stars on the table under the scrabble tiles.

“With deceptively simple prompts, Parrish led me to a place inside me that I really needed to connect with in order to move forward with my mental health journey in a way that feels safer and more expansive. The way she brought together mental wellness, spirituality, and creativity opened doors in my mind and I am surprisingly excited to explore what’s beyond them!”

Why create with me?

I’m Parrish Wilson and I’ve been facilitating transformative online writing workshops since 2013. In the Mental Health Creative, I weave together creativity, spirituality and mental health to create supportive, reflective and meaningful workshops rich with growth opportunities.

The effects of creativity are powerful on many facets of our human experience, giving space for self expression, emotional discharge, self-advocacy and more. This is what I offer you in the Mental Health Creative, the opportunity to tend your soul through the creative spirit, and in wonderful company!

What others say about writing with me:

"Let me first say, I am not a writer! I tried Parrish Wilson’s writing process for my first ever blog post. Parrish took me through the steps, getting me calm and focused, gave me simple and practical tips, and taught me unexpected methods to get my creative juices flowing. It was precisely what I needed to boost my confidence and let myself loose on the writing process."

Mara

“I’ve always struggled to get myself into the “space” of writing.  A chorus of voices about not being good enough, not know where to start, etc. always got in the way of sitting down and committing word to page.  Parrish created the perfect container to relax and explore my writing. There was no pressure to perform, just a warm, supportive, sisterhood of fellow writers with useful exercises to drop us into our creativity.”

Janet

“Parrish has an amazing process that is so simple and works!”
