I am a graduate of English and Politics and have suffered with mental illness for the past 13 years. I have spent about 6 years in total at acute wards and PICUs (Psychiatric Intensive Care Units) and at the rehabilitation unit where I am currently a resident.

I was keen to find out more about BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) communities and their experiences with the mental health service but there is a scarcity of resources. So I decided to use my experiences and my skills to create a platform for members of these communities to share their experiences.

With the help of my brother Mansur who is a web designer, InMyWords was born. Our audience will be mental health professionals and service users and anyone with an interest in BAME mental health issues.
