I pledge to promote Brighter Berkshire during my book events in Reading and also on my social media platform.
Why are you making this pledge?
I suffered from depression on and off and recently published a book about my experience. Generally we need to raise more awareness of mental health issues in order to do away with the stigma still attached it.
What difference do you hope to make?
That there is more understanding that mental illness is an illness just like any other and what sufferers need is treatment and support instead of discrimination.
