Hello team. My name is Aneurin Howorth (or Noggy Boggy as some know me). I am a Third Culture Kid who lives in Scotland but grew up in East Africa. Unfortunately I support Newcastle United, but enjoy other sports too. If you have any questions about the posts or anything get in touch! I have a history of depression, anxiety and was recently diagnosed with a dissosciative disorder. I think we need to talk about these things. I have just finished a masters in psychology of mental health at Edinburgh University and am now working for a christian charity called the Navigators in Edinburgh.
The purpose of this blog (apart from helping me understand what is going a bit better) is to help people by sharing stories, particularly about mental health and being a TCK. I want people to try and understand what these things are like so that they don’t have to feel isolated and so that they can help other people who struggle with them. Just a wee disclaimer, I try my best to get everything right. If you disagree or want to correct me, please do! I need all the help I can get
Hopefully this is just the start of a conversation, ignorance is never an ally.
