At Defying Mental Illness (DMI), our joy is to see people who have been challenged with mental illness and/or their caregivers live life to the fullest.
We offer various services, and/or work with other recommended companies, to help you along the way in your journey to recovery.
It could be the middle of the night that you stumble across our website. You may be at the end of your tether. It is our hope that our blogs are the voice that you need right at that moment. That restrain you perhaps from giving up. We post minimum of three times a week. In addition, we have other services listed below.
Mental Health Support
Do you want someone who will listen and not judge? Are you fed up of talking but not being heard? Then we may be able to help you. Click here for more details.
Support via Email
We welcome emails where you may want some encouragement or perhaps advice. We provide free Email Support for this. We genuinely care about your welfare and progress, and take our time with each person.
Due to the volume of emails we receive, this is however limited to maximum of two email responses from us. However, we welcome updates on how you are progressing, and more so if we have requested this. Should you require further support, we would encourage you to take advantage of the Mental Health Support service (above).
We are not obliged to respond to emails, especially if the nature of the email is abusive or unfriendly. In such instances you will be blocked from further contact. Your privacy rights are protected. By using this service, you are agreeing that you are over 18 years of age. In very rare cases, would we interact with under 18s and you must state that you are in this category.

Community Project – Free Tuition
Chuck and Zoe love to give back to the community. Therefore we offer FREE group Maths and English classes to primary age children every Sunday at 2 pm for one hour in South London. For more details, go to our contact page and let us know you are interested.
We offer/can organize private, one to one tuition in Mathematics, Science, Computing skills, and French (up to GCSE level) at very affordable prices. We understand the stress of perhaps going back to work after having time off, about not having the right skills set, about feeling shy in a classroom setting to get these. For kids and teenagers, you can rest assured, we are DBS checked. If you live in South London or South East England, contact us to find out if we can help you.
Chuck and Zoe get invited to speak on various platforms, including radio and TV from time to time. If you would like us to speak at your event or any media, or you would like to interview us, please contact us. If you would like any of our guest bloggers to be a guest speaker, by all means you can enquire through us too.
Please check our events page for a list of our annual/bi-annual events, and never miss one of these!
Zoe was born to write. She writes on several increasing platforms including online magazines, columns and guest blogs. Her writing diary/commitments are getting more busy these days with the increased demands for her work, but if you like Zoe’s writing and would like her to do a guest post(s), use the Contact page to ask her. Chuck, is also a great writer and you can ask him too!
