Anxiety, Art and Me [02]

Hello, everyone! This is the second in a series of videos in which I talk about my personal experience with mental illness (specifically anxiety, depression and psychosis) while doing something arty or crafty. I’d like this series to be a conversation between us; I’d like to share my story with you and listen to yours if you’d like to tell it – no pressure though! I’m not a mental health professional, so I won’t be giving out any advice, but I will be sharing things that have helped me in my recovery journey so far.

Anxiety, Art and Me [01]

Hello, everyone! This is the first in, what I hope will be, a series of videos in which I talk about my personal experience with mental illness (specifically anxiety, depression and psychosis) while doing something arty or crafty – that way you’ll have something interesting to listen to and something pretty to watch (hopefully). This first video is a bit long as it’s a bit of an introduction to my experience with anxiety and how art (among other things) is helping me recover. I don’t (and won’t) just talk about art. In future videos, I hope to be able to respond to your questions and comments. I’d like this series to be a conversation between us; I’d like to share my story with you and listen to yours if you’d like to tell it – no pressure though! I’m not a mental health professional, so I won’t be giving out any advice, but I will be sharing things that have helped me in my recovery journey so far.
