Campaign: To encourage young men living with mental health issues to ask for help

At the age of seven, I was hit by a bus, which left me with permanent brain damage.

As I got older, I noticed that people were treating me differently and I began to feel isolated and alone, which led to depression.

I’m a lot better now and one of the things I’ve realised is that talking to someone really helps.

With Fixers, I’ve helped produce a short film to show other young men with depression that they’re not alone.

I hope it will inspire them not to turn people away if they’re trying to help – as there’s always support available.
