Mental Health Awareness

I founded the self help group Harrogate Black Dog over 3 years ago. Since then I have been campaigning in various ways to raise much needed awareness.

I have now published an anthology called “A Darker Shade of Blue”. This is a collection of poems written by people suffering from mental health issues and also by the loved ones of people who are suffering.

Please click here for a link to the book on Amazon.

I am still collecting poems for the second book so if anyone reading this would like to donate a poem please do.  It is not a writing competition and all submissions will be included.  It is purely to raise money and to raise awareness.

I have also made bracelets for the campaign which I am going to be selling for £5 each in local stores. 


I will be very soon setting up a shop on this blog to sell these bracelets from.
