Here are some people, articles and other things which inspire me ......
I came across Brené Brown. She is a vulnerability researcher and storylteller.
Treat yourself to a browse and watch one of her videos.
It is also because celebrities like Ruby Wax and Stephen Fry speak out about Mental Illness that I am inspired to do so.
Ruby's website has blogs, videos and links about her live show - all mental health related.
This is Stephen Fry's website - it isn't full of mental health stuff, it has all sorts of other interesting things to look at - especially some cool T-shirts !
But do search for The Secret Life Of A Manic Depressive, Stephen Fry's documentary. It is not linked on his site, but you can buy it on dvd elsewhere. There is a forum on his site which has mental health threads.
Here is an interesting article sent to me by a friend, it makes for a fascinating read. Not everyone accepts alternative realities, preferring those that are commonly familiar and grounded in accepted fact.... but I like keeping an open mind...
