I have written a blog for the YoungMinds website, which discusses my Fixers campaign. Click here to read it.
I was interviewed on BBC Radio Nottingham about my Fixers campaign and to discuss my experiences with mental health.
There has been so much interest in my project that I’ve expanded my book into a website. I’ve had people contact me from all over. Art organisations, young people, mental health service users, professionals, charities and youth organisations have been in touch. It’s really exciting.
I’m in the process of working with my local NHS trust to distribute my books and promote my project.
My Fixers book is now complete.
I’ve already received the following positive feedback.
CWP NHS Foundation Trust, CAMHS: ‘The e-book and project look amazing. This is a really good alternative resource for our older young people to use. We look forward to sharing it with them.’
Jonny, Social Worker: ‘The website and book look great, something really unique, good luck!’
Claire, Mental Health Nurse: ‘Insightful yet emotional, everyone working in mental health should read this!’
Judith, mental health service user: ‘The book is really moving and inspiring. It’s lovely to have something that I can relate to so very easily.’
Positive comments were also posted when news of my Fix was shared on Twitter:
‘This is wonderful. It’s such a lovely and creative way of looking at what can be quite a negative experience.’
‘This is a wonderful project, giving voice to those who stigma suppresses.'
