Hi! I'm Marcus, 
Welcome to my Ministry of Change Patreon page
Over the last few years I've struggled with depression and anxiety. I found navigating life really overwhelming and got to a point where I didn't know if I could go on. I reached breaking point and realised that I needed to do something to help me understand my experiences and to help other people in similar situations. So Ministry of Change was born.

I'm traveling around the UK in my lovely little red campervan, Ruby, and I'm sharing my experiences with anxiety and depression and exploring different approaches to how we view, accept and learn from the difficult parts of our lives.

Creating Spaces to Talk About Mental Health
Creating spaces for us to share stories of how we experience the world is very important. While we all experience life in a very unique way, in sharing stories we can start to understand that there is no 'normal', there are no 'shoulds' and that we can give ourselves the permission to be who we are. Ministry of Change is one of those spaces. 

Podcast and more...
The main focus right now is the Ministry of Change podcast. That is where I currently see the most value in creating and intimate, yet far reaching medium to share the stories I collect during my explorations, but along side that I am creating short videoswriting about my experiences and exploring different creative ways to enable people to be themselves. 

Why Patreon? 
I had a bit of funding to help me get the project off the ground, but now I am relying on my own (not so far reaching) savings. I've stripped back my outgoings as far as possible, but platforms such as Patreon allow me to continue to do the work I'm doing.

With the help from people like you I will be able to continue to reach out to people and collect stories around mental health and continue to open up discussion and work towards ending stigma and hopefully saving lives. 

“Rewards”
This initially felt tricky. I worked out a long list of tiers and different rewards but it didn't sit right with me. I wanted to try something a bit different. For this project there seemed to be something uncomfortable about having ‘better rewards’ for giving more money. I feel that money is such a relative thing. For someone being able to give £2 a month might mean the same as someone else that can give £200. The starting blocks of life are different for each individual.

I’d love to be able to give access to all the additional content to anyone who has the generosity to support the project.

I’m not sure how this will work, but I’d like to give it a go and hope it doesn’t go against other people’s ideas of how this should work.

For your convenience I’ve added some suggested donations under different ‘rewards’, but feel free to ignore those and donate whatever feels right to you.

What would your support mean?

  • Enable me to spend time making regular podcasts to capture and share the stories I collect
  • Allow me to focus on discovering the best people and places to talk to
  • Fill up the Ministry of Change HQ (a.k.a the van) fuel tank to get me from A to B  
  • Cover the hosting for podcast/website hosting etc
  • Continue to explore new ways of opening up the conversation around mental health

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and I'm very happy to be sharing this journey with you. 

Lots of love, 

Marcus
