My book "The light in my mind" has been well received and has gone all around the world helping to change people's lives. It has been truly amazing hearing the way it has opened doors in peoples lives and has been very humbling as well. My book shares openly about my mental health journey which started in the old mental health system. It is a down to earth book but also a positive one. One comment from a reader said " It changes the way you think and feel about humanity". How wonderful to know. Mental illness is looked upon as something to hide or joke about by those who are ill informed. I want to break those barriers down by the truth of what it is all about. I have done a Radio documentry. I have been on local radio and have done some TV work. I go around the country and speak about my story, and in doing so enlighten people who stay in the dark ages over mental illness. Breaking down stigma in a positive way based on all I experienced is my aim. I share how I came out from it proving the medical profession wrong. I was told officially that I had suffered from medical neglect. I said good bye to all in the mental health system some years ago, and when they asked me to write my book I did in my own way. I had to come out into the world and found I had another journey on my hands. The world outside was so scary.Now my life is wonderful. I feel my book has brought alot of good from its contents which replaces the bad. All proceeds from my book goes towards helping a wonderful childrens charity.
