Escape through the vent – writing to release
World Mental Health Day on Sunday 10 October is an opportunity to put even more of a focus on everyone’s mental health and wellbeing, including our own. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, who you are or what you do, mental health support is something we all need the world over.
We chat with Alex Vellis about how writing helps as a coping mechanism and a way of managing his mental health issues, as well as how to use writing as a way to de-stress.

Making a Bee-line for Books
Bryony Bishop, aka Bee, is the founder of Bee’s Bookshare, a book group with a difference. This vibrant community of readers regularly meet up (in non-pandemic times) to share a love of books and discover new reads. There are no set books to read, you just bring at least one book to swap that you’ve loved or loathed to pass on and reading tales to share. We had a catch up with Bee to find out more.
