Welcome to The Social Hermit

Welcome to my blog ‘The Social Hermit’. Please bear with me whilst I get the site up and running.

The Social Hermit aims to be a living and growing resource for Disability Activism, Mad Pride, combating loneliness and social isolation.

My name is Cal and I currently live in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

I’m a Camerado and a Pirate.

I have lived with Mental Health issues since I was 15 years old and I am a great believer in the Mad Pride movement. Ending the stigma of having Mental Health issues is a key part of my activism.
