Location: University of Chichester
Campaign: To help others cope with and understand panic attacks

Although I'm a theatre student and I love performing in public, I suffer from panic attacks.

 

These attacks can be triggered by crowded places and can cause breathing difficulties, physical immobility and shaking.

 

People have sometimes commented that I look ‘drunk’ or that I’m just being a drama queen.

 

I want to show others that it’s important not to judge someone having a panic attack and instead offer them some support.

 

Helping someone through an attack can stop them feeling isolated.

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

 

Connor Stocks Harry Boulter
Laura Bowler Nathan Lomax
Nick Southcott Sophie Smith
Louie Smith

Thank you to Dave Corcoran for agreeing to be interviewed for my broadcast in support of my campaign and to the University of Chichester for allowing filming to take place on campus.
