Description

Harewood is a mental health ambassador and has been open about his own struggles, confessing that he used to self-medicate with alcohol to deal with his bipolar-like symptoms, discarding the medication given to him by doctors.

Thre is no black in the union jack) I didn’t do that as a child; then I just related it to the Queen's Jubilee. see a picture of a black person that they may recognise from the television, they will enquire as to why his picture is there, and then they'll understand… all of the unpaid work that my ancestors did, and the brutality of what they suffered… helped build this house. The description of his sectioning is gruelling and like in his own TV documentary (My Psychosis and Me), shows how issues of identity and self can easily lead to mental health breakdowns in our very own if not openly discussed and not dealt with from the very beginning, in primary schools right up to the workplace.He remains unflinchingly honest when discussing his encounters with racism in Britain and how this largely contributed to his eventual breakdown and shattered sense of self.
