  • 2Information and knowledge of support services is easily accessible
  • 3People do not feel isolated because of mental illness
  • 4Negative attitudes are replaced with understanding and acceptance

Photographer donates royalties to Mind Your Head

Shetland Works is a new book launched by photographer Alex Boak. It contains only photographs-no words of Shetland people at work.

Alex has very kindly agreed that all royalties from the sale of this book come to Mind Your Head.
