Psych Central is looking for freelance writers to work on a variety of mental health content.
PsychCentral.com is a long-standing destination for mental health information, reaching 6 million readers each month. We’re looking for writers to help us create empathetic, evidence-based content with a focus on conscious language and inclusivity. We want our content to empower readers from all walks of life to build resilience and enhance their emotional well-being.
The site is currently undergoing a rebranding after an acquisition by RV Healthline. Freelance assignments will involve revamping existing articles, creating new content, or both. All assignments will require the writers to closely follow our detailed style and sourcing guidelines and to focus on empathetic language.
Articles typically range from 800 to 1,500 words. Rates vary per piece and are generally $150–$300, depending on the complexity of the assignment. We will initially work on a trial basis and then discuss regular contributions.
If you’re interested, please submit your resume/CV and 2 to 3 relevant writing samples, highlighting any certification or personal experience in the area. We welcome all applications but may be unable to respond individually due to high volumes of responses.
