Campaign: To encourage students to talk about mental health

I know people who have experienced mental health conditions.

It can be a really difficult time, but talking to someone can make things easier.

I’m passionate about making a difference and believe it’s important to challenge the stigma surrounding mental health, so that young people feel able to speak about their issues.

With Fixers and the rest of my team, I’m targeting students at university.

We want to show those who are feeling stressed, anxious or depressed that they’re not alone, and that talking to someone is the first step towards recovery.

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

 

Aine Maguire

Ben Grant

Daniel Smith

Heather Reynolds

Martin Toner

Patrick Sally

Rachel O'Brien
