Socially, I come with my husband to the acoustic night [Instrumental], and it’s great because you’re hearing artists that have produced their own music, they write their own songs and lyrics, and they’re quite appropriate to mental health issues. Also there’s Secret Cinema, where you get to see a movie, and again that’s fun because we can all socialise together.
Coming to Inkwell boosts your confidence – especially if your confidence is low, you get it back. Also, it gives you the opportunity to focus on something else and forget about your problems, your concerns and your worries.
You feel you can open up, you’re not judged, and you’re welcomed. My quality of life has improved dramatically – there’s hope for the future.”
