One Day: Dealing With Depression
Different people have different ways of dealing with depression and mental health issues. For me, writing is a great way to let off steam.
Putting pen to paper has allowed me to feel more in control of things, and music has always been a release for me. It’s helped me cope during some of the toughest times in my life.
I want to encourage other young people to find a way to express their emotions. It could be through writing or art - it doesn’t have to involve talking to someone else about your feelings.
With Fixers, I’ve helped to create a film to accompany one of my spoken word poems, which is set to music.
It offers my perspective on depression and I hope that by sharing my experiences, I can help others.
