About Me

I’m a millennial with anxiety and a blog about politics. I also like vegan cooking, social work news stories, and stories about people planting allotments.
Please comment and let me know if you see any mistakes, anything problematic, anything shaming, etc, and I will try to change it within reason. This is a no-hate blog, but that doesn’t mean no justified anger, there’s a difference.

  1. Hi

    How are you? I wonder if you could help me. I set up a charity two years ago to help children and young people avoid going through the chaos of my mental illness. Over that time, I have been campaigning for equitable government funding of research into mental illness. I want to help improve the treatments and services currently available to people of all ages.

    This has drawn a blank with the politicians but when I approached leading equality and human rights lawyers Leigh Day they felt there was a case to answer for using the Equality Act. To help us with this case I am looking for an individual:
    • based in England (I live in Scotland)
    • has a disability (mental illness or neurodevelopmental)
    • is eligible for legal aid (low income or on benefits)
    This does not result in someone standing up in court. We are just looking for someone or a child (in which case the parent’s income may not be so relevant) to write a witness statement about their illness with the help of Rowan our lawyer (https://www.leighday.co.uk/Our-experts/Senior-staff/Rowan-Smith).

    I can imagine this might be ‘stressful’ to think this was happening or that you are challenging the government but the statement would be written and submitted some time before the case is heard and if you didn’t put the date of the hearing in your diary it would probably pass without you noticing.

    Our ultimate aim is to double spending on mental health research and create a real change in how we help people of all different mental illness and neuro-developmental conditions. Please could you share this with people who might be interested in helping and feel free to get in touch, even if it is just to discuss this further. It would be great to hear from you.

    Keep up the good work!

    Kind regards
