What is Mental Magazine?

Founded by Journalism and Photojournalism graduates from London Metropolitan University in late 2019, Mental Magazine gives an honest take on students' mental health. Studying can be a daunting prospect alone, but with the added potential added stress and worries students can encounter, it's easy to throw in the towel. So that's where we want to come in and help!

We want to provide students with a platform to seek advice and content which they can relate to; no voice should ever go unheard. Our mission as a magazine is to support, educate and encourage people struggling with mental health along with people who maybe don't properly understand their own mental health issues.

 Born and raised in the Tuscan countryside, I moved to Portugal when I was nineteen.

 I discovered my passion for photography there and decided to move to London to pursue a Photojournalism degree.

 My main interests are street, documentary and recently discovered news photography.

Art Director, Creative Editor, Website Editor

  Came to London in 2017 to pursue my passion for writing about everyone and everything, and capture moments others would not notice.
