I have managed to publish my journal for others to use but my dream would be to be able to donate my books to licensed therapists to pass onto their clients free of charge for them to use at home in their own recovery.
I also would like to donate books to people who have not yet dived into therapy and are struggling with their mental health via a requesting service where they can request a book sent to them completely free.
Mental health therapy should not cost money and EVERYONE should be entitled to some form of help.
The reason for crowd funding is that each book costs me £8 to get printed and posted to someone who needs one.
I am asking for donations to be able to cover that cost. 100% of donations will be used to print and distribute these journals to people who need them.
About the journal
I personally have suffered with multiple mental health issues since being a teen. I have experienced many different therapist for many different kinds of reasons, as well as hit some of the worst lows I could have ever imagined. Though my journey to understand my mental health and to come to a healthy cohabitation with my mind I found writing journals the most therapeutic way for me to deal with my emotions and feelings. It was a way to let go of how I felt and move on fully well knowing I didn’t lock it up somewhere in my mind and refuse to deal with it. I always found it came back to haunt me one way or another.
We all need a way of relieving stress and pain and prompted writing can be one of them. How many times have you sat down to write about how you felt and couldn’t find the words?
Well I found it was easier to use prompts for getting my emotions out. In therapy I wouldn’t be able to talk about an issue unless my therapist specifically asked me about it.
By using writing prompts I was about to use this technique outside of therapy.
