I am Daniel Harris, I have Bipolar and PTSD - I was in CARE!

Check out my Full Interview on the Victoria Derbyshire Show RE: Mental Health http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03sgk1r

After having a mental health breakdown last year and finding myself homeless I found other care leavers with a passion for music though a great charity called Rees Foundation.

We devised our first performance in just 4 hours and had no sound check on the day, it was the first time I had been on stage for 14 years and the 700 strong audience made up of foster kids, kids in care homes, and those adopted.

I am from Brighton and Hove.

We wanted to continue the inspiration we prodvided those kids in care and travel nationwide in the future to use performance art and music as a way to inspire these'looked after children' we want to give them hopes and dreams for the future and we need your help.

Nattylyn and her 11 year old talented son Zion (who you can see beat boxing in the video for Mad World) are also massively inspired by music, Zion plays drums and experiments musically.

Nattylyn has faced her own demons, she is a fighter and a talented musician and vocalist.

Nattylyn is based in Leeds.

Carlena is a fighter, another care leaver she suffers from Alopecia and is partially death, she is active with kids in care and is based in Doncaster.

Greg Keyboard was in care, today he works with kids in care and is a talented keyboard player.

Ian - Is a care leaver and talented rapper, his lyrics are emotionally raw and fits in well with the ethos of Voices Matter which is to use the powers of word to make people think.

We have a music producer and we are writing the lyrics for the album as we speak, the whole process will take 6-8 months, we need your support to help us raise awareness and make a difference to those affected or touched by the care system, fostering and adoption.
