The Onlookers (Poem)

The ridicule from the onlookers Towards those with a damaged mind Reflecting the evil and exposing the suppression Conformity of the closing blinds   What is it they’re asking? What is it they’re mocking? Something they don’t personally understand But lingers in their twilight shadow   Crowds of laughter but tears full of pain WhenContinue reading “The Onlookers (Poem)”

The Low Mood

From the naked eye you see a smile A delightful smile of a woman who has everything What you don’t see are the bricks within the decorated walls The bricks that weigh down her emotions The bricks that fall on her heavy as she sleeps You can’t see the bricks she holds within herself SoContinue reading “The Low Mood”

Forest Imagery

Allow your soul to feel the warmth of the summer air as you close your eyes and imagine an exotic beach surrounded by fields of sunflowers and dandelions dancing in alignment with the velvet green grass. Your soul feels passion, it feels delight, it is the symphony of the milk way, an inner warmth thatContinue reading “Forest Imagery”

Symbols & Indoctrinations

One way to separate an individual from a mental health label is to ask them their values.  Values are what separates each individual retrospectively. For example, one person may choose to live in a busy city to work for a top technology firm because they enjoy communication and applying their skills to the general population whereasContinue reading “Symbols & Indoctrinations”

The Isolated Borderline

To the partners of the sufferer. I know how hard you try to help your loved one. I know how hard you try and make communication. The days your loved one curls up in bed not ready to face the day whilst you put food on the table, the rapid mood swings with such emotionalContinue reading “The Isolated Borderline”

Early Sunrise 🌅

The sea blue light of the early hour Awakens the nests within the trees A slight breeze and a heavy yawn The transition from dusk to dawn Hold the hour at which you wake Appreciate the day that lies before you Tomorrow isn’t here yet We only have today Today to make change Today toContinue reading “Early Sunrise 🌅”

The protagonist

I speak with thunder I speak with thought I lost who I was Distressed and distraught I expressed my story I untangled my woes Will my story end with a cliffhanger? The question is Who Know’s?

Shakespeare wrote about narcissm 🎭

I was analysing some brilliant works composed by Shakespeare and realised that in one of his plays, Macbeth, Macbeth had murdered three people that affected Lady Macbeth and deteriorated her mental health. Her mental health rapidly declined. This was going back when social media, photographs and television sets weren’t invented yet. Shakespeare wrote about narcissmContinue reading “Shakespeare wrote about narcissm 🎭”

How do ‘biases’ affect the general population?

Biases are contradictive. Biases are incorrect. Biases are forms of opinionated judgement. We all haven’t experienced the same experiences except we can conform to the same idea based on another’s intuitive judgement. Status is mostly responsible for this. We will unintentionally use the availability heuristic to make judgements about people even when not represented with the facts.Continue reading “How do ‘biases’ affect the general population?”

The difference between ‘thinking’ and mental health conditions

So we’ve all heard the saying – ‘If you can change your thoughts you can change your life.’ Yes this is true…   But…   Mental health conditions can affect an individual neurologically, physically and mentally that can have a substantial impact on everyday life. Some mental health conditions require medication to keep the brainContinue reading “The difference between ‘thinking’ and mental health conditions”

Using the environment to describe mental health💙

Developing skills 📝 I took some rather splendid photographs of Central London this week for my research portfolio which I plan to use to describe mental health using the environment as a visual perspective. How does this work?  You travel to a place that means something to you personally. It can be local, abroad, orContinue reading “Using the environment to describe mental health💙”
