I want to help people with mental health problems by giving advice

I want to help people with mental health by giving advice or anything I can do to help. I have mental health myself and I feel it helps if I help others and I feel I give good advice and would do well working in this sector.

What difference do you hope to make?

It will help others to deal with their problems

I pledge to promote Brighter Berkshire during my book events

I pledge to promote Brighter Berkshire during my book events in Reading and also on my social media platform. I suffered from depression on and off and recently published a book about my experience.

I hope 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.
