Campaign: To encourage young people to look after their mental health

I struggled with my mental health growing up. I was a young carer for my mother who was ill and I feel I wasn’t given enough support.

 

I was picked on in secondary school, and became depressed, anxious, and generally felt like I could never be happy.

 

Everyone needs to look after their mental health; just because you don't have a 'problem' with yours doesn't mean you don't need to work on it.

 

I want the education system to equip children and young people with the knowledge, skills and advice they need for becoming happy, engaged, successful adults.
