Our Volunteers at Fledgling offer their time out of love and a passion for what we are trying to achieve, and all of our Volunteers are people who have struggled in ways similar to our members so we can offer firsthand insight.

BIO

Hi everyone! My name is Kirsty and I am from Dundee, Scotland. I have experienced a number of mental health issues over the years including psychosis and a nine year alcohol addiction that I've eventually learned to manage. I've finally found the right supports for me and had to learn my own do's and don'ts the hard way. I am now so grateful to be free and never tire of feeling physically well along with it. Looking with an eye to becoming a drug and alcohol worker in the future as I have learned a lot about the good life and creating a bridge to it.

As a personal artistic project I am presently endeavouring to work on designing and drawing a deck of Oracle cards - a fantastic tool for reaching insight and clarity. Of the arts I most enjoy drawing and discovering new music. I have found in Fledgling an amazing artistic community which seeks to honour all unique human experiences and enthusiastically create anew from them, delving into whatever the experience may be!
