Location: Craigavon, County Armagh
Campaign: To show what it's like to live with agoraphobia

My mum has had agoraphobia for the last 11 years. 

 

I remember desperately wanting to help mum but not knowing what to do. Over the years she went outside less and less. 

 

I've made a poster campaign with Fixers. We came up with the idea together of a girl looking out through a window, with writing on the frame spelling out her anxiety.

 

I want to put them up in health centres and schools and places where people will notice them and start talking about the condition. 

 

The more it’s talked about, the more it will be recognised and I hope more support will be made available to those who suffer from it.

Caitlin Henry helped me with this Fix. 

The following people supported me with this Fix: 

 

Paddy Love from Belfast Health and Social Care Trust

Dympna Quinn from The Lakes Family Practice

John Fitzsimons from Slack Press
