I have dealt with grief a number of times in my life.
One of the hardest things for me during these periods was the feeling of isolation.
But I’ve learnt that when you’re dealing with bereavement, you don't have to cope alone.
With Fixers, I want to show others that it’s important to find yourself a support network throughout the grieving process.
Your friends, family or professionals are there to help.* NOTE: Fixers sometimes go beyond the 16-25 year age bracket while working on their Fix.
Alan McConnell and Jamie-Lee McLean are helping me with this Fix.
My Fixers project is supported by Simplyhealth which helps people care for their everyday health through health cash plans, dental plans and independent living solutions.
With over 140-years of history in the healthcare market, the organisation is working in partnership with Fixers to help support young people to have their voices heard on the subject of mental health.
Mandy and Natalie at Quarriers Stopover Service are backing my Fix. They helped me while I was grieving and have supported me throughout my project.
