I'm an author and former mental health nurse, and I've been a mental health blogger since 2017. I live with major depressive disorder, and I'm passionate about speaking up to fight the stigma around mental illness.

An important part of writing for me is to be able to connect with others and hopefully provide some useful ideas or information. My first book, Psych Meds Made Simple: How & Why They Do What They Do, aims to empower the mental illness community by making pharmacology more accessible.
