Name: Sam Barakat
Age: 21
Year of the Fix: 2018
Location: London, UK
Campaign: To make CAMHS services more accessible

My name is Sam Barakat and I work as a Mental Health First Aider.

 

Growing up with depression,I found accessing CAMHS services to be very difficult, due to my school timetable and the fear of my parents finding out.

I am campaigning for mental health services to be more confidential and accessible for young people, so that they aren't afraid to ask for help.

 

I have created a video and a petition with the hope of improving the way that CAMHS services are accessed.
