So, I’ve been a bit remiss about putting up the blog report of our Lampeter gig. And that’s not for any kind of BAD reason, it’s more like a case of lots of good reasons… So, the report will be up shortly but in the meantime, look at our Media page for the pictures, which more or less tell the story of the event by themselves. So one of the things

By madcaff|May 22, 2014

Well, MaDCaff is certainly getting popular. We had a really great turnout at our second Aberystwyth event at the Morlan Centre, on 17th May.

Last week Miranda and Rachel had a chat with Katherine Landergan who is a Graduate Journalism Student at City University, London, although she is actually from the other side of the pond. Katherine is writing about people with mental health conditions who have found unexpected  artistic benefits from seeing the world in a different way. She would very much like to talk to anyone who has experienced this personally. We are trying

Miranda’s Story

By madcaff|February 18, 2014

Hi, I’m Miranda and I am the co-founder of MaDCaff, and thought I’d share my story with you… I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 1993. I was 21 years old.
