Mental health is something which affects us all. From adult right back down to child, it's something which is hurriedly brushed under the carpet or hushed. Having worked with children with mental health illnesses and having friends battle mental health illness I felt the need to express my experience into art and literary form. After a very wacky conversation with a friend and having a desire to write, I have complied together a children's book countered around 'Zicasso' - a young child and her journey through mental health. Illustrated through bold colours and rhythmic text this is my interpretation of my experiences of people with mental health.
The cogs are turning, the balls are rolling and the only thing stopping me from getting published is finance. Something I can't wholly provide being a student. So I ask you as a friend to please donate as much as you possibly can to help me turn my work into a book.
Thanking you, your friend Zahrah x
