Writer, journalist, giver of advice…

Hello and welcome,

Unfortunately, Sally Brampton walked into the sea on the 10th of May 2016, and is no longer with us. This website stands as a monument to an extraordinary woman, who was beloved by many and was a passionate advocate for those struggling with mental health, as she did so bravely herself. If you wish to learn more about Sally’s life, please visit her about page. If you want to read what she wrote, her writing page contains a record of all of her journalism in recent years. She also wrote a number of books, which are still available on Amazon and other platforms – the most well-known of these is Shoot the Damn Dog, which was the winner of the Good Housekeeping Award 2008 and a testament to her fierceness in the face of that great opponent, depression.

If this is the first time you are hearing of Sally’s death, then I am sorry. I miss her too.
