Suzanne Day alias 'Anne Wigglebottom'
Why being creative helps with mental health?
"It is a healthy way to get a message out there and to say what is in your heart and soul and also to be heard by others.
It is doing something positive about what happened to you so that you can help others to understand and also for them to feel better and to use creativity in their journey of healing"
