Mental Health Advocacy & Stigma Reduction

$50 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 1 person in 1 month

My Passion!
To create content that helps people, reduces the stigma of mental illness and enables people to follow their dreams.

I believe that knowledge should be free and easily accessible. That is why I will always release my content for free online. 

Putting information that can positively impact people's lives behind a pay wall just seems wrong.

Why Do I Need Your Support?
I would like to be able to release much more content, but I am currently restricted by the amount of time that I can commit. I need to balance content creation with work and family life.

Even something seemingly as small as a one minute video can take a long time to complete - once you take into account the writing time, retakes, editing subtitles, uploading and publishing. 

As you could imagine, a 2000 word blog post, 30 minute podcast, or a book takes much longer.

How You Can Help
Your support makes this possible
 
It enables me to commit more time to writing, producing, editing, and uploading all of the content that you are enjoying. 

What I Have Created So Far With Your Support:
'How To Get Your Sh!t Together' - Practical tips, advice and techniques to help you Overcome Anxiety, Defeat Depression, Move On From Trauma, Find Meaning  & Follow Your Dreams

'The Reality Check Podcast' - Short talks and long interviews about mental health,  motivation and life.

'The Share Your Story Project' - A platform for you to share your story on mental illness, disability, physical injury, trauma, sexuality and alternative lifestyles.

I also regularly blog and vlog all of the above topics.

Moving Forward:
I have a lot of projects ready to go in the pipeline:

'1 in 5 - Destroying Stigma With Statistics ' - will highlight the reality of mental illness, disability, inequality, race and other factors through an easy to digest presentation of real data, completely referenced. 

As the name suggests, I hope to destroy stigma by creating a highly shareable resource, backed with real evidence that will serve as a conversation starting point.

Some Featured Facts:
- 1 in five adults are currently suffering from mental illness (1 )
- Suicide is the leading cause of death for males aged 15-45 (2 )
- $16 billion spent on cosmetic plastic surgery (3 )
- 25 out of 100 pregnancies ends in miscarriage (4 )
- 56% of prisoners are Black or Hispanic, yet make up 28% of the population (5 )

Wage Slave ’ - A collection of short stories and poetry that aims to highlight the absurdity of the modern approach to work and life.

Work is necessary. Hating it isn’t.

Thank you for supporting my work. Together we can make a difference.
