Now more than ever, mental health is of the upmost importance. In times of crisis, it's normal to feel down, frustrated, saddened, hopeless, despairing, sorrow and grief. But you are not alone and you and your mind matter.
We all have mental health and some of us even have mental health issues. I sadly lost my mum in 2012 as a result of mental health problems, a tragedy that could have been avoided had she realised, not only was there a light at the end of the darkened tunnel, but that her light shone brightly for all those around her to see.
Despite her death, my mother was fortunate enough to have access to high quality mental health care. She had a certain privilege not everyone else has. She had access to help whilst others may not. Whilst this didn't go on to save her, she was granted the help she needed because of the more privileged position she was in. And this isn't right. It's not right that some groups of people are less likely to have access to such help. It's not right that systemic discrimination and racism leads to people from ethnic minority backgrounds failing to get the help they deserve. And it's not right that these people may go on to die as a result of this.
That's why I am using the sales of this tshirt to donate 50/50 to Black Minds Matter (a charity that aims to connects black individuals and families with professional mental health services in the UK) andMIND (a mental health charity based in the UK also)
Nobody, no matter their race, gender, sexuality, background, religion or financial status should struggle or be denied access to mental health support.
Please always remember there is hope, hope that stretches beyond the current moments. You matter and your mind matters.
