Safe For Kent Fixers

Safe For Kent Fixers

Name: Safe For Kent Fixers
Age: 19
Year of the Fix: 2014
Location: Kent
Campaign: To tackle the stigma attached to mental health conditions

As a group, we’re involved in a project called Safe For Kentwhich raises awareness of mental health issues within local schools.

 

It’s something we feel passionate about because most of us have either had experience of a mental health condition, or know someone who has.

 

We feel there’s a stigma that prevents people from talking about their problems and want to break that down.

 

Young people need to see that, just like physical illnesses, having a mental health issue is nothing to be ashamed of.

 

With Fixers, we're working on a film to let others know that it’s okay not to be okay, but to encourage them to speak out and tell someone if they have something on their mind.

Here is a list of Fixers helping with this Fix:

 

Ashley Witham Benjamin Mason
Carly Fraser Charley Harris
Eleanor Morgan Katrina West
Leanne Travers Shayoni Basu
Tamanna Miah Sarah Ward
Kathleen Davies Alexander Roberts Dunn
