FEEL OF THE FIX…

 

Young people who have struggled with anxiety formed a united front at the Fixing My Anxiety conference in London on November 2, 2017.

 

The innovative event gave them the opportunity to discuss the issue, and to have their voices heard by key decision makers and practitioners.

Fixing My Anxiety helped young people, aged 16-25, find ways to improve the lives of anxiety sufferers in five areas: home, health, school, work and media.

 

Most of the young people involved had previously campaigned with Fixers or were in the process of producing their own creative projects about anxiety.

ANXIETY FILMS

 

Fixers has worked with many young people who have experienced anxiety, many of them have made compelling films to give an 'inside' view and to encourage greater understanding. Some of these brilliant films were shown at the event.

‘QUESTION TIME’

 

In the morning the young people took part in workshops at ITV’s London Television Centre.

 

Then in the afternoon, TV personality Nicola Mclean and Fixer Jessica Jayne, who have both suffered the effects of anxiety, hosted a debate where the young people answered questions.
