Rachel Kelly is a writer and mental health campaigner. Rachel speaks publicly about her experience of depression and recovery to help educate and break stigma. She is an official ambassador for Rethink Mental Illness, Young Minds, SANE and The Counselling Foundation. Rachel’s memoir on recovering from two severe periods of depression ‘Black Rainbow: How words can heal – my journey through depression”, people often asked her what she had learnt about how to stay well. Her book, ‘Walking on Sunshine: 52 Small Steps to Happiness’, answers that question. It is a season-by-season guide containing fifty-two small, sanity-saving tools, many of them based on the principles of mindfulness. Rachel’s latest book ‘The Happy Kitchen: Good Mood Food’ provides nutritional information and recipes based on over 140 nutritional studies to help keep calm and well.
