The Perspective Project

A group of young people have established a new online platform for people to share creative responses to their experiences of mental ill health. www.theperspectiveproject.co.uk/ hosts a range of material with the hope of breaking down stigma about mental illness especially in young adults.

The site has two aims: the de-stigmatization and normalization of mental health, and to provide a therapeutic outlet for those suffering directly or indirectly from mental health issues. It offers a free, open, and creative platform for sharing experiences with mental health and accepts all mediums: from factual written accounts, to visual art, poetry, videos and creative writing.
