Writer based in London, passionate about politics, mental health, parenting, and business
Eight years ago, Shea was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder. Since then she has worked hard to educate herself and those around her on the experience of mental health issues and has learned that her illness need not define her.
Recently, Shea has worked closely with campaigns such as Time to Change to help end the discrimination that many people with a mental health problem still face. She wants others to understand that a mental health problem is nothing to be ashamed of and if we all learn to be a bit more open about it we can help to break the taboo.
