My name is Natalie. I'm 36 years old and live in North Tyneside, UK.
I've always been creative and find having a creative project helps me to relax and unwind.
I am passionate about health and wellbeing, especially since I was diagnosed with Depression, Generalised Anxiety and a Panic Disorder. After years to trying to pretend nothing was wrong, I am finally accepting of my mental health disorder and have found a way to be empowered by it, helping others to not feel alone.
I am a Time To Change champion; a Mind Blue Light champion and run a peer support walking group called Mental Health Mates Newcastle. For more information please click on the below links:
