Sensitive Topics - A guide on writing them


This essay will discuss a variety of sensitive topics, such as abuse, mental health, and suicide.

The SCP Wiki is, and always has been, primarily about horror. Things that go bump in the night, monsters and ghouls, our inner demons. Horror takes many forms, from pulp to squick, psychological to suspense, and over the past 10 years of this site we've left very little ground untouched. But there are some topics that it takes a more careful hand to write; and this essay will cover some of them, and provide information about how to write them, and how not to. I'll also link good examples of SCPs that cover said ground.

Mental Health



Personality Disorders

Schizotypal Spectrum

Everything Else


Murder and Assault


Sexual Abuse
