Welcome and thank you for visiting! I’m Cara. I’m a twentysomething year old mental health nurse who has also experienced mental illness for most of my life. I’m incredibly passionate about breaking down stigma and fighting the discrimination attached to mental health problems, and I hope to do that by not only sharing my own experiences, but creating a platform for others to share theirs too. You can usually find me talking all things bipolar disorder, eating disorders, general mental health and wellbeing, and the challenges of navigating the world while experiencing mental illness
However, it’s also important to me to show that there is more to people than just their diagnosis. I am also a pink haired cat lady, a tattooed traveller, a veggie and a feminist. This means that in amongst my chatter about mental health, you’ll also find me talking a lot about travel, feminism and rambles about my general life and observations I make along the way.
