I’m Alex.

I write about mental illness, wellness and how to be an advocate for yourself.

I work in a mental health foundation, and on the side push for better understanding of mental distress, compassion for humans experiencing this illness and highlight where helpful tools have worked for me.

Finally, I am a firm believer that laughter is medicine which is why posts are peppered with things that make me smile. I hope they make you smile, too.
