Dwell Time Issue 2-
I find it very helpful to write down your thoughts when you are feeling down. It helps to get over those anxious times. I was happy to discover that it can also be helpful to share those thoughts to other people in crises so they do not feel alone.
That is why I shared couple of pages from my feeling-down-diary to the Dwell Time publication.
'Dwell Time is an award winning, not-for-profit publication reflecting on mental wellbeing, established in 2018 by Alice Bradshaw, Vanessa Haley and Lenny Szrama.
Dwell Time arose from tragic circumstances of the death by suicide of one of our close friends in 2017. He was a passionate advocate of arts being a tool to discuss mental health and bequest us the task of raising awareness of mental health through our work as artists and curators. Art, poetry and sharing personal experiences have the power to communicate, educate and reduce the isolation, marginalisation and stigmatisation of people suffering for mental ill health. A small edition arts publication is not going to change the world and cure mental illness but in talking about this subject through art, poetry and lived experience that affect a huge proportion of population, we hope that it will honour our late friend’s memory and his request.'
