The power of PJs & Art to make mental health an everyday conversation Insta:@Pjoys_

by Michelle Morgan in London, Greater London, England


Because ending our crowdfunder on just over £60K rather than just under feels so much better! But more importantly, because I believe in Pjoys, I believe in Remi and Susie, I believe in Jo, Sarah and Katy, in Frankie, Sarah, Simon, Rik, Charney, Amanda, Suresh, Timid, Yara, Bejay, Augie, Claudia, Nicky and so many more. I believe in the need to make mental health an everyday conversation. I believe in all the people who have made this crowdfunder and Pjoys start up something very special and also, I believe in me. Thanks so much everyone! Meesh xx
Congratulations on this wonderful work. Mental health is just as important as physical health. All of us at Best Beginnings love the Pjoys concept and we’re passionate about working collaboratively to drive positive societal change!
I’ve experienced the affects of severe mental health from across the aisle first-hand, in someone who would not accept help. So many people suffer on both sides, especially when the situation seems hopeless. Shifting the stigma of mental health and creating the space to talk about its impact is so important. Thanks for reaching across the aisle to shed hope and light on a subject that has been wrongfully steeped in shame for so long.
Michelle, thank you for your courage and generosity in setting up PJoys. I am starting treatment for depression and BDD and have been terrified of sharing this with people in my life, so here goes... one step closer to being with this condition and embracing who it makes me. Honest and strong and secretive and vulnerable and sometimes not the Wonder Woman people know me to be. So thank you... from the bottom of my heart for launching this. I will share my story, I will choose to be brave. The world needs this.
Wishing you all the best Susie and Co! This is such a wonderful initiative and please let me know if there's anything I can ever do to help. Lots of love from down south! xxx
Congratulations with your new venture. I lost a cousin and a very close friend within 9 months to make suicide. My friend, award-winning filmmaker Ben Akers is making a film about my cousin. Find out more by visiting gofundme.com/stevedocumentary
