Mental Health has always been subject close to my heart. Not only has it impacted my life but also the lives of my friends and family. My work often focuses on finding a voice for the experience of mental health . I always try to be honest about my experience, to help raise awareness, to inform on how it feels but also to make sure no one else feels alone. Below are some of the ways that I want to help:

Mental Health access - consultation
As we start to recognize mental health as a serious health issue, we also need to think about how these issues can impact peoples day-to-day lives, particularly in accessing and engaging in social activities.

Let’s start the conversation about mental health access:
I always endeavour to write about my own mental health and the challenges that come from a career in the arts. I'll be honest about my worst days and probably less about my best

Do You Mind?
Do You Mind? has been my way of talking about my own mental health. As I was developing projects around others mental health I realised it was only right for me to get my own experience on the stage, before expecting anyone else to. It was a way of getting it out of my system as well!
Do You Mind? has been performed in theatres across the UK and internationally.
It has found a new audience in boardrooms and organisations, including OneFamily and Checking.com as a part of Mental Health Awareness months and Wellbeing Weeks.
