Hear Myself Think has been developed in partnership with Streatham Space Project, and is supported using public funds by Arts Council England. With thanks to Dr Noelle Blackman, Professor Simon Gilbody, and the members, volunteers and staff of Mosaic Clubhouse and Arts Network.


If, like Kesra, you’re feeling anxious and overwhelmed, small activities such as setting aside time to wind down, staying off social media, noting down anxieties, and checking in with your body through gentle stretches can help you get a better night’s sleep. However, if these thoughts continue to stop you sleeping, or from living the life you want to lead, it might be time to share how you feel with a friend or family member, or your GP - though that might be a positive action for tomorrow.
