Education through Poetry

I suffer with a mood disorder which is a mental illness, But woman who suffer with mood disorders, such as depression are considered as just being weak.

Even some doctors dont recognise mental illness as a serious disease, a mood disorder is not considered a disability but it is, it affects my daily life so I would I have decided to spread the word about depression through my poetry.

I love poetry and hope one day I can raise enough money to study poetry, perhaps even get a mentor. And educate people about this disease in South Africa.
