I’ve experienced mental health issues in the past. I was bullied, both at school and online.
At the time, I didn’t really talk to anyone, which I regret now. It was a horrible feeling.
With Fixers, I’m working on a short film to encourage young people who are facing similar struggles to speak out.
I hope to take it into schools, youth clubs and colleges to show others my age that they’re not alone.
I want them to know that there is help available if they need it.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
