Since the 2nd International #EmergingProud day events on the 12th May we’ve been in a race to compile the 2nd Commemorative Print to be ready for you all to reflect on the amazing stories shared over the last year.
I am delighted to announce that this year, not only will this beautiful book contain stories, artwork and information donated by our wonderful community; it will be officially PUBLISHED by the specialist Mental Health Publisher; CHIPMUNKA!
Chipmunka Founder, Jason Pegler, and I have been connected virtually for some time and it seems so fitting that we work in collaboration with our shared vision; to spread awareness and end mental health stigma. Jason set up Chipmunka Publishing in 2002 to give a voice to those living with mental health problems, after he himself had a period of hospitalisation in 1992. His renowned autobiography, ‘A Can of Madness,’ was released in 2002. Chipmunka is more than just a unique publisher, it is a social enterprise, and Jason won The New Statesmen’s Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2005.
Watch out for the launch announcement; the 2018 Commemorative Print should be available by mid June…
This limited edition commemorative print features a collection of the blogs and artwork from the last year since the launch in May 2017. These amazing personal stories of those who #Emerged Proud, aims to change the negative prognosis dialogue which mainstream psychiatry portrays today, and provide validation and HOPE to those who might be struggling.
