ABOUT

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.

Achieving the seemingly impossible, openess, support, understanding and teamwork.
