Campaign: To create better understanding of anxiety

When I was at school I suffered from really bad anxiety.

 

I used to skip school because I felt so desperate and nobody seemed to understand my mental health condition.

 

I am now sharing my experiences to help others and have created leaflets and business cards that highlight the symptoms of anxiety, raise awareness about the condition and create empathy for those suffering with it.

 

Schools have a lot of help for the disabled and those with learning disabilities and I hope this project encourages them to better support students with mental health problems.

 

I want people to take mental health in adolescents seriously.
