Writer turns the page to a health­ier life

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Ncslsc Centenary -

CLARE­MONT res­i­dent Martin Gra­ham wants to raise $45,000 to self-pub­lish his book Awak­ened from Blind’s Walk­ing Sleep: Jour­ney Into Love and Re­flec­tion, and build men­tal health aware­ness.

The for­mer jour­nal­ist and poet de­scribed the book as a telling of his per­sonal jour­ney to pos­i­tive men­tal health.

“Later in life, I went through tur­moil and emo­tional harm and the way I made my­self bet­ter was through writ­ing,” he said.

“I ini­tially kept it to my­self but then some peo­ple read it and told me I should pub­lish it be­cause if it man­aged to help me feel bet­ter, then I thought maybe it could help oth­ers.”

He will need to raise $45,000 by Oc­to­ber 13.
