MEET THE 'SCOUSE POET' USING CREATIVITY TO COMBAT DEPRESSION

Lewis Cleator has amassed a large following with his poems, using the name The Scouse PoeT.

When Lewis Cleator fell into the darkest depths of depression after losing one of his closest friends to suicide, it was his passion for poetry that brought him back to the light.

The martial arts promoter swapped his boxing gloves for pen and prose to prepare a heartfelt poem for his friend Chris Jackon's funeral in February 2022, and was amazed by the number of people who were touched by his work. Inspired, he decided to turn his secret hobby into a cause for good, using poetry to convey all aspects of mental health under the moniker The Scouse Poet.
