92. MA­BEL Mu­si­cian

Hot Press - - 100 Voices On Mental Health -

In a house of cre­ative peo­ple* I was very lucky. It was recog­nised from a young age that lots of peo­ple have de­pres­sion and anx­i­ety. When I’m feel­ing frus­trated, I chan­nel it into some­thing pos­i­tive – rather than just feel­ing bad. I was quite open emo­tion­ally as a kid. My par­ents said, ‘You're one of us. You need to find a form of ex­pres­sion'. The first thing I want to do is com­mu­ni­cate with peo­ple. If I talk about it, then maybe some­one else will be able to talk about it too. *Ma­bel is the daugh­ter of singer and song­writer Neneh Cherry and Mas­sive At­tack pro­ducer Cameron McVey.
