Local singer songwriter's Christmas single to benefit MIND

Debbie Moogan attended Aylsbury High school where she also worked. 

After the break up of a long term relationship, Debbie began writing songs again. 

"Everybody Loves Me" was written during a difficult time which is why part of the proceeds will be donated to MIND.

Debbie explained why it was important, especially at Christmas that proceeds be shared with the mental health charity:

"I thought it was a really important charity, especially at Christmas. Not everybody is having a good time at Christmas, life goes on, things go wrong, relationships break down and families are not always the most functional.

"It seems to heighten everything I think when the expectation is that its going to be a lovely time."

MIND warns that feelings of loneliness and stress can be increased at Christmas time, and it is even more difficult for those with mental health problems. 

Debbie found that returning to music helped her through her difficult time, she hopes that those struggling know they have somewhere to turn to.

Communication is important in music and mental health, and Debbie believes the work MIND does allows people to feel heard:

"I think the main thing is to have somebody there to talk to, not even to offer a solution. The worst thing to do is to stay at home, like Bridget Jones did, like I did."

Debbie is now studing an electronic music course at Amersham and Wycombe college, and is grateful for the access to education there is for every generation.
