Lily North has been a wedding photographer since 2016, and in the last two and a half years, has seen her business go from strength to strength. Not only did she win Best Newcomer at the 2017 North of England Wedding Awards, she is already booked in to pap over 20 weddings next year. And it's only October!
Lily says she has always wanted to use her photography skills to support members of the local community, and is planning to lead a series of ‘photography walks’ during Mental Health Awareness Week 2019. The walks will consist of introductory photography workshops in a series of outdoor locations around Harrogate and York, and are aimed at anyone with an interest in nature photography who is struggling with their mental health.

Here, I write about mental health and wellbeing, with a focus on how communities can support people who are struggling. One reason I blog is to raise awareness of mental health issues, along with support services that are available.
