Age 14, Northern Ireland
I’m passionate about raising awareness of the issue of mental health for boys and men.
Men in Northern Ireland are at the highest risk of suicide in the UK, with many suffering from PTSD, depression and anxiety. But there’s a severe lack of services and organisations that offer support.
The stalemate at Stormont is having an effect too, by delaying mental health funding. It’s time to see political passion ignited around this issue, and help increase the support that’s available, so we can promote young people’s resilience and wellbeing in the future.
