Ed Boait, an expert by experience with Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust, has had a short story included in an e-book published to coincide with World Mental Health Day.
Ed has been working with the Trust as an expert by lived experience for several years.
He has bipolar disorder and paranoid schizophrenia, and also has depression and anxiety, but says he has found writing to be great therapy.
His short story, Change Can Always Happen, has been included alongside stories from 14 other people, in a Champions Storybook from Time to Change, published to coincide with World Mental Health Day.
Ed’s story can be found on page 12 of the book.
