Knitting Time is an ongoing visual arts and poetry project, which aims to address personal experience of the links between suppressed grief, loss and psychosis through the medium of art and poetry.
Through this survey I hope to get critical evaluation of how the work has been received. Your feedback is vital in helping me consider how it might progress in the future.
It seems to me that the taboos on talking about grief and psychosis lead to further entrenched mental health problems. Interventions by church and medical practices are as likely to make matters worse, as they are to help alleviate suffering.
My intention in creating this work has been to try to break down some of the barriers and to start a conversation about the impact on our appreciation of the importance of emotional factors beyond the clinical representation offered by psychiatry.
I welcome your constructive feedback.
If you fill in the survey before 1 November your email address will go into a prize draw for a free copy of the Illustrated collection published by Waterloo Press. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/F2MN2MT
