Whilst mental health isn’t something we at Ready, Steady, Cut! would ordinarily dedicate entire posts to, we collectively feel it appropriate and in our duty as a largely-used online source to both support and encourage breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health issues. Have some personal insight from our own photographer and writer at Ready, Steady, Cut!, Manpreet Singh:
Although I’m usually seen gallivanting around this website showcasing my photography, I felt it only appropriate to discuss something which is on everyone’s mind for a change today: mental health. If not for mental health, I’d say it’s very unlikely my passion for photography would even exist. My name is Manpreet Singh, and those who know me well enough know about my encounters with mental health (namely, depression) and those who don’t know me that well probably know of it, too – it’s not something I’m quiet about anymore.
