When considering what to write here I couldn’t come up with a topic that I would have been comfortable writing without anonymity. This is what Freedom of Mind means to me.
TW: self harm and suicide.
Anyone who knows me is aware that I am very open when it comes to discussing my mental health and emotional wellbeing. For the most part everyone has been accepting and supportive of whatever I had to say and that itself has been a crucial part of my recovery.
Freedom Of Mind Festival began as a vision – the kind that you elaborately plan in the shower and then usually do absolutely nothing about once you get out and dry yourself down.
