The book’s author is a trained mental health nurse from Lympsham.

A Lympsham-based writer has released a poetry collection which delves into the different aspects of mental health.

The collection, named Psychobabble and Snake Oil, is a collaboration between writer, Henry Bladon and Dutch artist Marcel Herms.

Henry holds a PhD in creative writing, for which he examined the connections between literature and mental health.

He is also a trained mental health nurse.

Henry said: “I’ve been involved in mental health care for over 30 years and I write about important issues relating to how mental health is 
perceived and how care is delivered.”

The work’s release falls close to National Mental Health Awareness Week which began on May 18.

Henry also showed appreciation for Marcel Herms’ ‘distinctive style’.
