Project Description

Age 19, West Midlands, England

Living with social anxiety inspired me to take social action to help young people with mental health conditions. I aim to give young people a way to talk about their emotions creatively and to make sure professionals give them the chance to talk about mental health and feelings  in a range of settings. I have created a resource pack for professionals that includes postcards of my artwork to help young people to talk about their feelings, and a short film sharing my experience. I am so proud to have been nominated for a Health Champions Award for my work in my community.
