Mindfullness

My heart is singing from all of the things we’ve already done, my love.

My heart is singing because of all the things we’re going to do, my love.

My heart is singing because of all the things we’re doing in this moment, my love.

By Jon

After decades of ignoring his illness which began in childhood, Jon was diagnosed with a mood disorder aged 36. Since then, Jon has worked hard to find more effective ways to manage his condition via a combination of medication, counselling and healthy living. Jon acknowledges that he failed to seek help sooner (with near fatal consequence) because of fears about what a diagnosis might do to his career – having seen others dismissed when they were clearly exhibiting mental health issues. Jon is passionate about seeking justice for fellow humans with mental health concerns.
