Yesterday, I finally allowed Help Musicians UK to have, and to publish, a blog that I started writing about two months ago. The delay was mostly as a result of the slight trepidation I felt about making public what is a very personal story.
In touting myself as an advocate of mind health care and as someone who believes that mental – or mind – health should be destigmatised, it makes sense that I should give my reasons for doing so.
The SING4SANE Big Sing project is also soon to take place in a recording studio and I know some of you may wonder why I am putting myself through the trouble of organising such an event. After the weeks of delay, it finally felt right yesterday to release my story.
Help Musicians UK has been very supportive in allowing me to use their website to talk about my own charity project, given they are a charity themselves. And the team has been very considerate and patient in waiting for me to deliver my write-up which I’d promised I would have delivered to them many weeks before.
I thank them hugely for that. And, if you might like to read my words, please visit their website to read my blog by clicking here.
