"I have struggled with mental health for most of my life. I was on the national eating disorder network for a period of time. I have also had CBT and exposure therapy for social anxiety when I was 12. When I was 13, my psychiatrist suggested I may have bipolar disorder. When I was 14, I went through repeated trauma over two months. Soon after, I was sent inpatient around 100 miles away from home. This was awfully traumatic for me and my family, as I was so young in age and we were all so unaware about mental illness. While I was an inpatient, I discovered painting in an art class held on the ward. Then, that was it, everything changed." - Abbie Find out the full story of why Abbie is hosting a #Crafternoon at mind.org.uk/YourStories #MentalHealth #creativetherapy #art #crafts #crafting
“I have always painted, drawn, made things and this is my happy place – anywhere I can lose myself in creation. I have often described my crafting time as ‘having an affair with myself’ because I would feel guilty for giving the time to myself when I could be doing something for someone else BUT I now understand the importance of giving myself that time without feeling bad. We need to break the stigma attached to mental health issues and that’s why I’m supporting Mind with my #Crafternoon .” – Karen Karen shares how her work as a Police Officer impacted her mental health.

“A few months ago I wouldn’t have imagined being in this place right now where I’m considering organising something like this. Going from not leaving my bedroom for days, scared of walking to the shop or putting out the bins to organising a Crafternoon and even writing a blog about my experience is amazing. It has been a tough journey, but I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the resources available here and the incredible support from my loved ones.” – Gabby Gabby heard about #Crafternoon through @zoella , and knew it was the perfect fundraiser for her.
