Campaign: To encourage people with mental health issues to speak out

I’ve suffered from panic attacks at school. It was really scary, because I didn’t understand why they were happening.

 

When I realised they were a symptom of my anxiety and depression, they were easier to deal with.

 

Schools need to teach people what it means to have a mental health problem and how it can affect your health.

 

My Fixers campaign is about encouraging young people to open up and talk about mental health.
