How we perceive and experience the world, the way we think and feel is what makes each and every one of us unique individuals. Our mental state determines how we interact with those around us and the emotions we feel towards ourselves.


The Fixers on this page are sharing their stories and campaigning for greater awareness of issues relating to the mind.

Whether it’s mental health issues like depression, self-harm or eating disorders, or conditions such as autism, dyspraxia or Tourette’s, Fixers are addressing a variety of topics to encourage a better understanding of our headspace.
