As Dance Without Sleeping wrote when posting the first carnival last year:
I think it’s really important to share our mental health experiences so that 1) people know they are not alone and 2) people understand what it’s like to experience mental health issues. It’s not all hearing voices in your head and covering things in tin foil!
Mental health issues are complex and not always easy to talk about. It can be hard to explain to people that have not experienced it what it’s like. So I decided to hold a little carnival to give others a chance to share their stories.The next Mental Health Carnival will be posted here on Liberal England on Monday 26 March.
