I'm so motivated at the moment. I'm working hard on a new business venture that I'm starting up and hoping to roll out later this year.
I'm hoping to combat Mental Health Discrimination with creative writing. How am I going to do that, you might ask... well I have a plan. It's a long thought out plan that I've actually been working towards for over a year. I'm running writing workshops for people with mental illness to help them learn to express themselves creatively.
I want to expand this to going into schools and giving creative writing workshops to children and young people to help educate about emotions and discrimination. I really enjoy doing this work as it brings my two passions together, social work and writing.
I'm open to tips, ideas, suggestions, feedback... any thoughts you have about this.
I already have a solid plan of action but I'm always open to feedback. If anyone has contacts in schools or know of people who would be interested in a workshop about creatively battling mental health stigma through writing and other exercises... please email me - firstname.lastname@example.org
