This Tuesday was the Alliance Self Management Awards: a celebration of people taking control of their lives and health.
We love that the awards celebrate the networks of services and people that support self management, but were particularly excited by this year’s Individual Transformational Story of the Year Award. All three shortlisted entries were inspirational and show the complex relationship between mental and physical health and wellbeing.
The winner was Angela McCrimmon, who has lived with bipolar disorder for 20 years and has published a book on her experiences: Can you hear me now? Finding my voice in a system that stole it. Angela’s story resonates with what we hear every day from Community Correspondents on the importance of finding your voice and owning your story. You can read more about Angela here.
If, like us, you couldn’t make it along to the event, you can catch up with what happened and who said what here.
