Author - Holly Darragh-Hickey
Holly Darragh-Hickey is a mental health advocate and wants to share her wisdom with those who are lost and without hope. She wants to broadcast her newfound hope to the world. She wants to eliminate the ridiculous shame surrounding ill-mental health. She wears her emotional scars proudly, as someone who has survived. Holly began writing at fifteen. It was an outlet to her as a struggling adolescent, and later on, as an adult living with mental ill-health. She has long written to catalogue and process challenging experiences from her life. Writing is a tool that helps her to understand, resolve and pay homage to said experiences, and more importantly—herself. She also writes about the solace of the natural world and fur therapy—both of which are dear to her heart.
