Selective Mutism Awareness Month – So Far!


Well, the October selective mutism awareness month is halfway through already! Here’s just some of the highlights for me. Feel free to send in yours ?


Leanne has done a series of blog posts especially for the awareness month
“…You’re going to meet some amazing people who are going through exactly the same things as you. They are going to help you so much, especially when you have a bad day and feel like no one around you understands because they will understand”

"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."
