Music based on own experiences with mental health
In 1998 I suddenly had psychosis. I lived in a imaginary world and could not distinguish between imagination and reality. I was treated with antipsychotic medication and had to live with the disabling side effects it had.
Experiences put into action to help
As I wanted to let my own experiences be of benefit to others, in 2015 I completed an education as a peer, who precisely puts his experiences into action to help others.
Now I give lectures on mental health, where I play a selection of my own compositions, and talk about what significance music has had in my life.
