Hello, I hope you're well? I'm Harriet Dyer, a comedian based in the UK. In 2014 I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and ever since then i've been using my comedy to help spread awareness about mental health. Here is a clip of such - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/disability-39379545/h...

Due to my mental health I sometimes find gigging difficult so have crafted my own little circuit of opportunities that suits me. I wanted something to help me see some "ups" when i'm stuck and splurged in a downwards vortex of bipolar doom so started a podcast called, "Don't Worry, Bi (polar) Happy." It's a weekly podcast where I have to find and talk about three positive things that have happened in the world each week and it's doing well so thank you so much for listening, it really is appreciated. Doing the podcast really has changed my life for the better, even when at my darkest it's given me a focus. I want to expand the podcast and interview people who have had the positive stories happen to them and indeed people who are inspirational in the mental health world, people who have overcome great odds and of course people that still struggle as such is mental health. I've already got an idea of a few of the folk that I think would be brilliant, do be sure to let me know yours too? I want different, unique and interesting perspectives on mental health of whom share many means and ways of coping. For this I need better equipment and to sort travel / places to record the episodes.

Something that's also helped my mental health is the doodles I do which can all be found on my Instagram account @harrietdyercomedy
A few i've put on cards are here https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DyerDoodles
Some are about mental health, some are silly music puns and some are even serial killer commissions. I'd eventually like to A.) Put them in a book and B.) Gather other comedians with mental health issues to draw, then create a gallery night / exhibition for our work. This is something i'd like to also do nationwide with anyone that's in any way been affected with mental health issues in the form of workshops leading up to the gallery / exhibition etc. I'd like it all to be documented in books too. As far as I know none of this has been done before. It's all very exciting, and for the first time I see it as a real possibility with the help of you. Thank you so much. Harriet xx

After second month of £100 per month i'll be able to afford some mighty dandy recording equipment thus making my podcast far superior sounding. From then on once a month i'll go on location interviewing a mighty fine guest each month (the other three episodes per month will remain the same... but better quality.) The more per month the better the guest / location.
