Chipmunka Publishing is the Mental Health Publisher. Based in the United Kingdom, Chipmunka Publishing is giving a voice to survivors and others with mental health experience to share.
Chipmunka Publishing’s Company Vision
My goal in life is to help others and make the world a better place. Chipmunka Publishing is a platform to allow people to tell the truth about how people with mental health issues are treated by society, the mental health system, the state and the status quo. I want others to follow in my footsteps and help Chipmunka Publishing break down the taboo on mental health once and for all.
Statement from Chipmunka Founder and CEO, Jason Pegler
My name is Jason Pegler and I originally founded Chipmunkapublishing to give a voice to writers with mental illness around the world.
Through our range of more than 1500 books by more than 600 authors, we raise awareness of the stigma surrounding mental health problems by encouraging society to listen.
We want to reduce the humiliation that people with “mental illness” feel. By giving people with mental illness a voice, we give them the opportunity to lead better lives and inspire others going through similar experiences.
We are dedicated to unearthing new talent and helping those who may have gone unheard tell their stories.
Chipmunkapublishing is the Mental Health Publisher. Our mental health books give a voice to writers with mental illness around the world. We raise awareness of mental health and the stigma surrounding mental health problems encouraging society to listen. We are documenting mental health literature as a genre so history does not forget the survivors and carers of people with mental illness and disabilities.
We are a unique social enterprise focused on publishing both factual and creative literature. We want to reduce the humiliation that people with “mental illness” feel by being the main publisher of the mental health literary genre. We give people with mental illness a voice so that they can have the opportunity and positive mindset to lead better lives and hopefully full recoveries or at least a deeper understanding and acceptance of what they have experienced. We also publish people who have learnt to live with their experiences so their books can become inspirational to fellow sufferers.
Do not let your children grow up misunderstanding people with mental health issues. Let’s improve society so that mental health artists can empower people with mental health issues and be equal in society. Then they can shape their future and help others.
