WHY MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS TO ME

Having suffered with my own Mental Health issues since the age of 8, supporting others that are struggling to cope has always been a huge passion of mine. 

I believe that Mental Health is under resourced and under funded and as a Country we are reaching a crisis point. So by making more information freely available to those that need it and by supporting each other, the better we can tackle these issues. 

My aim is to draw upon my own first hand experiences of poor mental health, my journey to recovery through attending therapy and the knowledge that I have gained from retraining as a psychotherapist to provide you with articles that really tackle some of todays issues. 

I am passionate about writing and I am also a freelance writer for the Happiful group. I believe writing can be therapeutic in itself. So hopefully I can use my love for writing as a way to reach out and help others.
