I think my mental health problems came to light when I was about 14. I was in high school and I just wasn’t really dealing with the stress properly.
I didn’t really talk about my depression until I went to college. When I opened up about my mental health issues it was scary, but once you talk to one person and they don’t treat you like you’re weird, you feel a lot better about yourself.
With Fixers we came up with the idea to do a short animation.
Our project is about encouraging young people to open up about their experiences and their struggles with mental health.
