About our Illuminations Series
Over the course of the festival, we shall be showcasing the talent and stories of many women who have come forward to share their experiences of mental illness. Illuminations will feature written pieces, illustrations, poetry and interviews with women who have been kind enough to share their stories with us.
TYCI want to extend a sincere thank you to all of our contributors and volunteers. We hope that through this feature, we can increase understanding of mental illness and encourage discussion. Most importantly, we want to give those dealing with these problems a voice and reduce stigma surrounding mental health issues.
Please do note however, that this series contains frank discussion of struggles with mental health and and may act as a trigger for some readers. If you are affected by any of the issues discussed in this article, please consider checking out the Mental Health Foundation who can advise you on where to seek help.
There’s still time to get involved with the series. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to contribute.
