A dear friend of Making Waves, Andy Postman (known as Andy Parkinson) died in October 2008.
Andy was a fantastic poet and artist, who was an inspiration to many of our members and wrote prolifically about his mental health diagnosis as well as slugs, Monty Don and a range of other subjects. Some of Andy's poems were included in the Swings and Roundabouts film project, Insight in Mind. The film ends with his spectacular ABC of Insanity which with its witty and cleverly crafted scenes, inspired by Andy, goes a long way to challenge discrimination around mental health issues.
