Location: Buckinghamshire
Campaign: To battles stigmas attached to autism and mental health

From a young age I struggled with various mental health conditions which were amplified by my Asperger's Syndrome. 

 

Throughout my life, I've been on the receiving end of derogatory, belittling and stigmatising comments by professionals and the public alike. 

 

I've created a website called AMHA, which I want to be a safe place for people to discuss their health and create a more accurate view of what life with autism or mental health conditions is like, in order to tackle stigma and misconceptions. 

 

I feel with the help of other sufferers we can offer support and begin to change people's views and attitudes.
