Name: Bethan Workman
Age: 16
Year of the Fix: 2017
Location: Llandrindod Wells, Powys
Campaign: To support young people dealing with teenage stress

Being a teenager can be a time when young people are under a lot of pressure.

 

One area this stress can manifest itself is at school. There are huge expectations on students to do well in exams, but sometimes it can be too much to handle.

 

I was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder about three months ago. There were a number of factors which played a part, but exam stress was a major one.

 

It’s important that young people do well in life, but a piece of paper isn’t necessarily a reflection of someone’s true ability.

 

I’ve teamed up with Fixers to design a booklet to help others my age to cope better with stress and understand that talking to someone can really help.
