My name is Lorraine – I am a Peer Support Graduate, Artist and Poet who has lived experience of mental illness. I am passionate about making sure that people hear and understand the message of recovery.
I was keen to get involved in this project so that I could raise the profile of the reality of recovery from mental illness, even the most severe. I want to illustrate by example what people in recovery can and do achieve by way of making a meaningful contribution to a wider society.
