Campaign: To raise awareness of mental health issues and show that recovery is possible

I struggled with mental illness throughout my teenage years and into early adulthood and during that period experienced some of the darkest times of my life.

I didn’t have a proper understanding of mental health then, and feel that if I had, I might have known to ask for help sooner.

With Fixers, my friend Alice, and the rest of my team, I want to raise awareness of mental health issues so others have a better chance of knowing when they need to seek support.

I want young people to speak out about their feelings, knowing that they aren’t alone and that recovery is possible.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

Alice Catherine Tinkler
Hollie Cullen Chloe Print-Lambert
Rohit Lobo Katie Clark
Sophie Peachey Reiss Frost
Sipiwe Daka Laura Rose Goddard
Terri Parminter Lucy Kelly
Suzannah Baylis Cei Tubridy
