Campaign: To educate others about depression

Depression is an illness that should never be ignored.

My experience of living with depression nearly cost me my life.


It can be a dark and lonely place, but it is possible to beat it.


One of the biggest obstacles I faced was that people don't always understand mental health conditions. There is often a misconception that depression is ‘all in the head’.


With Fixers, I’ve helped create a documentary, where I tell my story to educate others about depression.


There is still a stigma attached to mental ill health, which is wrong. No one should feel they have to suffer in silence.

Tom Cutler and Ellie Taylor-Gore are helping me with this Fix.
