Shape the Future Generation💜

You are a Priority, not an Afterthought

Domestic abuse is a significant problem in the UK. Why is this? This is because what we are seeing is fundamentally a lack in positive culture, a freedom to oneself. We need to see a change in behaviour because it plays an important role in people’ mental health.

Anyone can be a victim of domestic violence and abuse, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, socio-economic status, sexuality or background. Domestic and family violence is a crime. Deliberately hurting and being cruel is an act of violence against humanity.

*In the year ending March 2019, 1.6 million women experienced domestic abuse

We Thank You For Your Support 🦋

After a long hard think, and after making a really difficult decision I have decided to let people know what’s been going on.

As some of you may be aware my son has Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) as well as traits of Autism, along with my non-visible disabilities we were struggling to keep our heads above water and overwhelmed by difficulties. Eventually I had to leave my job to become a full time carer for him as neither of us were coping in the situation we were in.

To help myself cope with the drastic change I started writing/creating music in awareness of mental health and how the pandemic has majorly affected not just my mental health, but so many others around us.

Please listen and enjoy this music I have created for anyone and everyone to listen too, to try and help others that are going through a similar situation. Thank you for all your support-it means a lot.

Understanding empathy is the first step, but also we can contribute to the quality of a sufferer’s mental health and mental illness by listening more, hearing other points of view and learning the key statistics and facts of chronic illness and chronic pain.
