Zaynah Shehraz is a twenty-something living in South London. Having battled various mental health issues since childhood, she is currently on her very own path to recovery after being recently diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Not A Simple Mind was born during her recovery and is dedicated to her personal experiences of mental illness and offering advice on how to live a life worth living.

After spending most of my life internalising my thoughts and feelings, I finally feel ready to share my story and want to be able to share my personal experiences of the lows and highs of what it’s like to live in today’s hectic world. My aim is to assist others and to help end the stigma attached to mental health. Please join me on my journey via notasimplemind.com.
