Support us

We all know someone with a mental illness, and the effects of climate change, COVID and political instability are likely to have increased the prevalence of mental illness amongst our friends and family.

There’s never been a more important time to shine a light on mental health and help heal those who might be suffering in silence.

Out From The Mist curate’s individual stories to shed unique insights into the experience of mental illness. It gives those who have experienced mental illness a platform to be heard, and a platform to proudly share their work.

“’We are telling our stories because mental illness often makes us feel invisible. For people to create art and put themselves out there for you to see is courageous. It’s about people taking control of their story.”

Michael Lockwood
