Epworth Hospital (Australia) – March 2017
This article, “Painting a bright future through depression“, is the story of my time in Epworth hospital in November and December 2016 while I was being treated for depression and anxiety, and how I started to paint while admitted. I was very nervous being interviewed for the article! But I’m very proud of how open and honest I was able to be, and I hope my story is able to positively influence other people and allow them to see that there is hope in the darkness.

The APHA wrote an article about my time in a private hospital, describing how I spent the time in-between treatments helping myself through painting. Another powerful article and one I’m very proud of.
