Hello, my name is Michael and I have suffered from poor mental health for over 20 years, culminating in a suicide attempt in July 2017. It has shaped my life and caused pain of various degrees to me and those around me, so I want to turn my experiences with mental health into something positive for all.
Right, now that’s out of the way, let me give you a little background to the crazy that is me. I am a creative nightmare. I LOVE everything that has some tenuous link to creativity, from cooking without recipes (with mixed results), dancing, art, design and my dress sense* (*sense used in the most loose sense of the word). For me personally, there is no better job in the world than to be creative in some way.
I want to use this passion to help raise awareness of how everyone can help those who are affected by the issues surrounding mental health.
