My name is Emma, and I'm passionate about mental health. I've learnt how hard it can be to talk about, but also how vitally important it is to do so.
I'm also an actor. I know first-hand the profound effect powerful storytelling can have on an audience. Honest, moving, personal stories engage people on every level and spark conversations in a unique way.
I decided to use storytelling and performance to raise awareness around mental health. In my one-woman show, I explore the realities of mental health: different conditions, how to support yourself and others, and most importantly, the humanity behind the stereotypes.
