Campaign: To encourage people to learn mental health first aid skills

I have suffered with panic attacks in the past and they have been frightening experiences.

 

In my opinion, people generally understand mental health issues to a certain degree but they don’t know enough.

 

I have certainly found that they often aren't equipped to react appropriately if they come across someone who needs help.

 

With my friend Daska Knapcova, we have teamed up with Fixers to make a film to urge people to learn basic mental health first aid skills.  

The following Fixers helped me with this Fix
