I've been diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). It gives me the urge to wash my hands at least 30 times a day.OCD is what I live with, but my team and I want to shed light on the different types of mental health conditions that can affect young people.
If others were able to recognise the symptoms and know how to help, it could combat the loneliness that some people experience.With Fixers, we hope to encourage discussion on the subject of mental health, so that other young people feel able to open up to their peers and seek support.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
Dr Andrew Mayers, Bournemouth University
Dr Andrew Mayers supports my Fix. He agreed to be interviewed to appear in my broadcast piece.
Fixers is a project of the Public Service Broadcasting Trust, funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund, and featured on ITV.
