It is because of being misjudged and stereotyped as mental ill health …………. Who do not understand the concepts of anxiety, depression, stress, social anxiety and the ways that illness like this can affect our health.
So I painted the therapy wall on my shed wall, for all in the community to see, so that this could act as a visual education.
I would also like to say that I included six bees in the painting and twenty two hearts, along with the word of “love”, with the dove that is painted above the hearts.
To show how important this means for a community to work together and focus upon, health, harmony and hope for those who need support in any type of way.
Supporting understanding and love, helps us to be better people and move forward towards a brighter future.
I included the bees and hearts for those lost their lives at the concert on the 22nd May 2017. Six people from the North East of England died in the terrorist attack in Manchester, so in remembrance of these people and their families, I wanted to do that.
This sad tragic event made me cry and thought this is not right, we must encourage unity in our communities and learn to understand one another. Encourage love and support and to wipe away the negative ways of people being misjudged or misunderstood, that leads to decay.
We need positive, outstanding ways for now and for the future years, to stand and make a difference that raises these issues and better standards that are fairer and more supportive in nature.
May I thank my mentors, my friends and family who encouraged me to do this project. Also Libby Seery, Karbon Homes, Just For Women, the Crisis team and the police too. All have understood, and given support without judgement.
