Garisch is a practising medical doctor and says writing has been a journey of healing and self-discovery.

She's a founding member of the Life Righting Collective where she runs courses in memoir writing to help others heal.

She encourages people to find a creative outlet they love and commit to it every day to improve their mental health.

I see writing as primary healthcare.
