We invited a 100-strong chorus of artists, writers, musicians, broadcasters, sports stars and more to contribute to Now We’re Talking, a mental health campaign, run in partnership with Lyons Tea and Pieta House. Poet and author Kate Tempest was among them.
The cities that we live in, the times we live in, they’re not well – these times are sick. The sensible, healthy response to the way we live is depression, anxiety and so on. It’s the logical conclusion, so I’m glad that your magazine is opening up these issues up in a way that doesn’t feel cloying, barbed or judgemental.
In my own life I’ve found certain things to be very useful. Creativity of course, and also exercise, even if it’s a strange thing to do when you don’t even feel like getting up. And also reading and listening to music. It’s good to feel a part of this massive community that goes back thousands of years, who left all of these beautiful pieces just for you to find.
100 Voices was published in the Hot Press Mental Health Special in conjunction with Lyons Tea and Pieta House as part of the Now We're Talking Campaign. For more please visit hotpress.com/now-were-talking/
