HeadSpace Magazine is a writing and art magazine based around the theme of mental health. It is published online, and also has print copies which it distributes free of charge to hospitals and support groups across Ireland and the UK. You can read more about the magazine and its aims here.
Issue No 3 is being launched tomorrow night at White Lady Art on Wellington Quay in Dublin. It features art, poems, fiction and memoir, and much to my astonishment it includes a piece I submitted about my stress-induced bout of depression in 2001 and about an incident which I regard as the start of my recovery.
Even more to my astonishment I have agreed to read this piece out at the launch. At least that proves that I am nuts.
Actually, I’m quite looking forward to the event, and I hope that the magazine gets all the publicity and attention that it deserves.
