What is Shades Of Blue?
An uncensored community, where we can share personal stories and experiences of mental illness from the perspective of both sufferers and loved ones.
The goal: to de-stigmatise mental health in a wider community and to help sufferers and their loved ones realise that they are not alone in this.
A platform to openly discuss, highlight and act to change endemic issues and abuses within the creative industries that contribute to poor mental health.
The goal: to shine a spotlight on poor practice that has been long concealed and ignored and to help create new framework to prevent these abuses in the future.
A creative platform, where we collaborate with talented artists, filmmakers, photographers and writers whose mental health struggles inform their work.
The goal: to demonstrate the power of creativity as a tool to process and combat mental illness – and to showcase amazing creators.
The more we unite and speak out, the harder it is for stigma, ignorance and industry abuse to survive.
