Louise Gornall is the fab new author of ‘Under Rose-Tainted Skies’ which is coming out from Chicken House in July. It tells the story of Norah who is confined to her house by crippling agoraphobia. But a chance encounter with her new neighbour, Luke, changes everything.
It’s clear Louise is a fierce advocate for mental health awareness, and this week she stepped it up with #InShadowSelfie for Mental Health Awareness Week.
It was a huge success last year – a Power Ranger even joined in! A Power Ranger!
The geek girl in me is dying, you guys! DYING!!! You’ll never guess who lent us their shadow for our #InShadowSelfie #MentalHealthAwareness campaign?! That’s my friend @36jody on the right, and on the left is her friend (and FORMER FRICKING POWER RANGER), @brandonjaymclaren!!! Eeeeeep!! 👊 We’re making waves, and I can’t thank you guys enough!! ?? Because #MentalHealthMatters
And this year, as well as to spread awareness, Louise wants to use the hashtag to salute absent friends. You can read her full blog post right here! Louise kicked us off with this:
