SOS Surviving Suicide - a collection of poems that may save a life
Really proud to have a poem in this amazing upcoming anthology that was the brainchild of Dean Stalham to be published shortly by Nirala Publications in collaboration with Stretch.
"Dean had a vision for a collection of work that was not about the poets or the egos of particular artists, but about honest raw responses to a mental health crisis. A book that could perhaps make somebody think, somebody stop or save a life." – Carlotta Allum of www.stretch-charity.org
