A Norwich woman has created a grassroots campaign to increase public understanding of mental illness.

Katie Mottram, whose work has been published by the Royal College of Psychiatrists, is the founder of #EmergingProud, a campaign to “re-think madness as a possible catalyst for positive transformation.”

The second International Emerging Proud Day on May 12 will see public conversations around the world about “mental distress”.

The campaign launched in 2017 with events and film screenings in 12 countries.

The Norwich event will take place at the Kinda Kafe on Castle Meadow from 10am – 4pm, with opportunities to talk with volunteers and see local artwork created in response to the event’s themes.
