About

Thanks for visiting my blog. My name is Phoebe (aka Brizbea), and I’m a twenty-one year old recovering from depression, anxiety and anorexia. Or, as I like to call them, my terrible trinity.

I’ve heard that writing is a good way to cope with mental illness. This blog is an attempt to discover if this is true. Most of my posts are, therefore, about topics related to mental health. Especially because it is an issue that I am very vocal about. Above all, I think mental health services are improving, but not sufficiently enough, and I’m also a firm believer that sharing personal experiences of our mental health struggles is important if society is to understand MH and take it more seriously as a health concern.

But there’s so much more to me than my mental health! My other interests include music, history, art, literature and travel, so expect posts on these, too.

As ever, please get in touch if you ever want to collaborate on a writing post.
