Depression, addiction and mental illness are common problems in the modern world, with one in four people likely to experience a mental health problem every year. Established in 2009, Little Episodes is a not-for-profit organisation consisting of professional writers, artists, musicians and actors with three aims to its mission statement: the first, to destigmatise and raise awareness of depression, addiction and mental illness; the second, to promote the arts as a therapeutic tool by holding writing and art therapy workshops; and third, to provide a platform for both emerging and established writers/artists to find community and collaboration using the first goal as their theme.
