Living Life To The Fullest
Is Our Mission
About Colorful Asylum
Founded in January of 2017 to assist a community that was shut down on another mental health support website. The blog had a rough start but it transformed into a personal blog later on in 2017. Colorful Asylum keeps changing but the one thing that is consistent is the weekly posts about different struggles we are going through as we cope with them. Most of the blog’s content is due to the hard work and dedication of those who volunteer their time to make posts. A lot of the posts do have a trigger warning and should not be taken as medical or mental health advice.
This is the place Tommy has shared his life story outside his personal journal. He mostly blogs about topics in his life, which include; urinary incontinence, cerebral palsy, mental illness, abuses of the medical system, and video games. Tommy enjoys advocating for those with disabilities and those who are having a rough time adjusting to the normal social constructs. By sharing what he really feels at the time uncut and unabashed, Tommy is able to convey his feelings on certain topics that are taboo for others.

Ash Lee Shares what comes to her mind. This is usually what she does when she gets the writing bug. She lets her words flow naturally and honestly. He passion includes; journaling, coloring, hanging out at the Peer Center, and her two orange tabby cats. She has tattoos all up and down her arms, which are very important to her. They symbolize her struggles with mental illness and being a foster care child growing up. She has been undergoing treatments for her mental illness that are out of the mainstream and is an open book.
