Location: Grange-over-Sands, Morecambe Bay
Campaign: To improve support for anxious young people

My Fixers project is to try to get schools to provide more support for young people with mental health issues. 

 

From the age of about 11 I started to feel very worried and anxious, mainly because I felt rejected from other social groups and it made me think that there was something wrong with me or that I was a bad person. 

 

It wasn’t until I was about 15 or 16 that I actually talked to someone about it. It got to the point where the school noticed I was crying and it was only once I had talked to them that I could talk to my parents.

 

I want to help decrease the stigma that is around mental health and also raise awareness of what help is there and show people that the right help for you can make your situation better. 

Eleanor Roberts helped me with this Fix.
