MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

SPOKEN WORD POETRY

ABOUT

I have been running the project since 2008. The aim of it is to use poetry to raise awareness of subjects like depression and mental health in an attempt to help those who are currently suffering and show them that it is ok and they are not alone. There are many taboo subjects that people are scared to approach but we have to talk about them, it is healing. I use poetry as the voice. I suffered depression and poetry saved me, it is an amazing outlet.

With the help of some amazingly talented Actors, Actresses, Voiceover and YouTube Artists from all over the world we are proving that the spoken word can be a very powerful thing indeed and its versatility can open people’s eyes and make them see how emotion can be portrayed in such a beautiful way with Poetry at its core. That in itself can be healing.
