We’re bored out of our minds of mental health being spoken of as statistics instead of people, or not being talked about at all. Is it understood? No wait … are we understood?


Understood by our Mum; our mates; the next therapist; next therapist; next therapist; are we understood by our boyfriends, girlfriends, Dad’s second cousin’s cat? Are we understood by the bloody NHS – because we damn well need to be – do we even understand our own, ourselves? What the hell is it? And why oh why? What can we do?


I’ll tell you what, we’re going to shout from the rooftops about it, using every voice we possibly can. From the funny to the absurd, the beautiful, the painful, all the experiences outside and in. Mental health belongs to everyone, every human being, everywhere. And it sure as hell doesn’t discriminate. We’re a squad of 30 and we’re loud; we’re entertaining and there’s definitely enough of us. No one’s on their own.
