Do live or work in London and have lived experience of mental health, either personally or as a carer?
Speakeasy was a magazine which ran from 2010 to 2018, in mental health hospitals in Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster. Written by service users and for service users, it provided a creative means for people in hospital to get their voices heard – by contributing poetry, artwork, stories and points of view. It was last published in 2018 as funding ended.
The Advocacy Project would like to seek new funding for a similar mental health magazine project, for people in hospital and in the community across London.
Your feedback will help the Advocacy Project to find out whether there is interest in having such a magazine.
Please have a look at examples of the Speakeasy magazine here.
