Mental Health Awareness Week - A Local Poem a Day
For Mental Health Awareness Week (18th-24th May), local author and poet Aimee Williams is aiming to write a poem a day in relation to mental health awareness specifically to try to reach out to others.
Aimee says: "I challenged myself on day one of lockdown to write and publish on social media one poem a day. The intention was to spread some positivity and light and it felt like one little thing I could do in a world where none of us have much control right now. This has grown into something much bigger then I anticipated and I have been sharing my own experiences of lockdown, the highs and lows, writing about anxiety and chronic illness during lockdown, the experiences of children during lockdown (which my own children helped me write!) but also the humour of home schooling and working from home with 3 small children!"
