Whether it’s writing for the magazine, helping raise awareness of selective mutism or giving back to the organisations who have helped you, here’s the place to do it!

SM Awareness

Often it seems that half the battle with having selective mutism is finding out that there’s a name for what you are going through. That’s why it’s important to make more people aware of the disorder as there are still a lot of professionals who have not heard about the disorder.

October was selective mutism awareness month in the USA. Although it’s not an official awareness month in the UK or other countries it doesn’t mean we couldn’t all join in! Go to the SM Awareness page for more details.

"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."
