“‘Success isn’t measured by what you achieve, but what you overcome seeking to achieve”


A dynamic organisation led by the voices of lived experience of mental and emotional distress and health inequalities.

Working collectively and collaboratively we seek to find solutions to the daily issues and challenges of life; which can cause mental and emotional distress. Is anxiety or depression as a result of economic uncertainty an illness? Will a tablet be the cure? Or, as a society does something need to change? ......

‘’ The economic crisis is expected to produce secondary mental health effects that may increase suicide and alcohol death rates’’
