” Henry is an artist and the co-author of the best-seller Henry’s Demons, a Father and Son’s Journey Out of Madness, which describes how Henry experiences in mental hospital.

Henry grew up in Canterbury and spent time as a student at King’s School, our neighbour on the Kings Mile, Canterbury. As a young artist he won the Pfizer Award and later went to Wimbledon Art College and Brighton University.

While at Brighton in 2002 he was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 2002 and spent eight years in mental hospitals. He continued to paint and published an account of his life experiences in The Independent newspaper.   This article became the basis Henry’s Demons, written with his father Patrick Cockburn.

Henry later completed his B.A. in Fine Art here at the University for Creative Arts in Canterbury and has continued to draw, paint, write and perform poetry ever since. “
