I’m a care worker, looking after young people with disabilities, and my campaign aims to change the way that people talk about those who are suffering from mental health conditions.

I suffer from dyslexia and dyspraxia, which makes reading, writing, balance and coordination harder for me than for others. Because of my conditions, I’ve heard people whispering behind my back, asking each other: ‘Is he stupid?’
So I know how much it hurts. That’s why this campaign urges people to stop the whispers – and offer kindness, support and friendship instead.
