Mental health has long been intimately linked with poetic expression. Reading and writing poetry can help to articulate struggles and find shared experiences; it can contribute to wellbeing and form part of a strategy of coping. It can be private musing or a public declaration. Angela Topping recently contributed to a new anthology of poetry on the theme of mental health. In this reflective hour she delivers a reading on mental health and wellbeing. We are delighted to welcome back Angela Topping to Gladstone’s Library. Angela was Writer in Residence for one month in 2013.
