SM Resources and Links

The page for all your selective mutism resources and links. This is a work in progress but will be updated shortly!


I thought it would be a good idea to have a list of SM websites, blogs and forums for everyone. I’ve started the list below, please let me know if you see any others and I will add them on.

Your amazing feedback!

"I recommend you for your hard work in 'spreading the word' about SM. I am encouraged by the rise of interest in the condition over the 21 years of SMIRA's existence, which, I am sure, is due, in no small part, to the efforts of the organisation in raising the profile of this disorder. The more ways that people can learn about it, the better."
