#HeadsUp50Project

An honest but optimistic look into depression and mental health awareness, that concerns all of us...

I introduced my #HeadsUp50Project here back in January 2018 and now I'm typing this just one day before my project begins on 1 March 2018.  

As well as chatting about depression, my journey and hopefully moving away from medication, I also want to look at how creativity can help us explore our emotions and help with depression.  I want this space to be a place of encouragement, sharing, a source for research and latest news on depression etc.  Go here for more resources.

Collages


See the videos below for a little bit more info...

Both a personal journey and an opportunity to look at depression and help to rid the stigma associated with mental health issues through shared conversation, authenticity, kindness and embracing who we are and celebrating that. I will be creating 50 (just turned 50) collages directly onto antidepressant medication boxes of various expressive faces, Yorkshire Tea teabags, personal writing and treasured finds.

I've taken my last Prozac tablet and I'm going to start with my doctor's protocol for reducing from tomorrow. I talk about materials I'm going to use for my collages, insights and how I'm feeling. 

Thank you for being on this journey with me...
