To celebrate mental health week (6-12 October), there have been a number of events and activities organised by the Mental Health Coalition of South Australia with the aim of increasing awareness and interest in mental health and wellbeing. 

One such activity was the Open Your Mind Competition run by mindshare, an online mental health community, that invited submissions of poetry, short stories and blogs in a range of categories. 

I found out earlier this week that I won the ‘Metro’ category with my poem Just like you, which will be turned into a piece of digital art, so watch this space!
