Chris Coombs

Chris Coombs is studying to become a therapist. He is a suicide attempt survivor who has dealt with depression and anxiety on a personal level for over a decade. Over that time-span he has found those initially helpful labels to be increasingly redundant and has come to place more importance on personal identity and meaning. He writes a blog focusing particularly his experience of internalised ableism and taboos from within the disability community, taking particular interest in the social model, as well as broader issues surrounding mental health and disability.
