Name: Connor Sladden
Age: 19
Year of the Fix: 2015
Location: Sheerness, Kent
Campaign: To encourage people to discuss mental health issues

I want to show others how important it is to overcome obstacles and get help for mental ill health.

After battling depression and anxiety, I found the hardest step I'd had to take was to seek support, but it helped me cope in the long-term.

I want people to stop hiding behind masks and to openly talk with a professional about what is troubling them.

Although it can be daunting, it is the first step towards recovery.

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

 

Colin Loader

Danni Power

Eleasha Vidler

Kathy Luckhurst

Macauley Wigglesworth

Zena Barton

Youth Social Action Fund

My Fixers project was supported by the Cabinet Office’s Youth Social Action Fund.

 

As part of the Cabinet Office initiative ‘Step Up to Serve’, which is spearheaded by HRH the Prince of Wales, Fixers is working in partnership with the Youth Social Action Fund (YSAF) to offer the Fixer experience specifically to young people aged between 16 and 20 in Birmingham and parts of Kent.

March 2015
An audience including Swale Borough Councillors and professionals from a local housing organisation were shown my Fixers film. I received some positive feedback. 

'The film was powerful and honest and it makes you think.'

'The video was honest and direct - an authentic voice.'
