What People Say

This is what Charlotte has achieved in both verse and image. By putting it out there, publishing it, she has transformed her own struggles into a gift of sharing. It requires courage, the willingness to hold up the mirror to ones own fragility and vulnerability. In short, the willingness to express what it means to be human. Nothing left to lose is the starting point. And in accepting and expressing it, so much is regained. Thank you Charlotte.                              – Arnold Zable, President of PEN international, human rights advocate and author

 

For much of my life I have struggled with depression, anxiety and self-acceptance and I decided I wanted to pursue alternative ways of managing and overcoming my struggles that didn’t involve prescription medication. On reading Charlotte’s Babyfacedassassin website I gained some tremendous insights and found myself saying “yes! this really speaks to me!” – Craig

I have been educated, moved and motivated by the work Charlotte is doing to increase awareness and empathy for mental illness. I believe there is powerful change being made through her efforts and I am so very thankful for her tireless dedication to this work. – Keren Flavell, TownHall Social

I think Charlotte is doing very important work with suicide. I too have faced the abyss on one very long dark night of the soul about 6 years ago. Still not sure how I got through it. Somehow the will to live was stronger but I know what it is to be consumed with doubt, self-loathing and a total loss of self-love. Charlotte is doing vital and deeply valued work. – Anon

I’m always moved by The Babyfacedassassin’s advocacy work in the mental health sector because it’s grounded in lived experience. Her work in promoting the sacred and healing arts, and how this has assisted in her recovery, clearly demonstrates the powerful benefits of venturing outside traditional medical psychiatric treatments. I think she balances this promotion well by recognising that at times, and for many, traditional medical treatments are also needed. – Eleni

Charlotte is a clear and inspiring voice in the field of mental health. Her insights and inspiring ideas about alternatives in mental health recovery are paving the way for transformation amongst individuals and organisations not only in the mental health field but the world at large. The world needs voices like Charlotte’s at this time, and it warms my heart to know she is out there and making positive change happen.  – Liam, Dance and Transformational Practitioner

Welcome! The Multidimensional Launch of The Babyfacedassassin!

This Blog is written with the presupposition that depressive spells, suicidal ideation and self-harming impulses are natural responses to the challenges of life. Granted there is support, nurturing, understanding and a degree of freewill, these aspects of human nature need not be feared but accepted, overcome and gently put to rest. I’m not interested in pinpointing why […]
