Age 20, Falkirk
My social action is about sharing a film of my personal story with others to raise awareness of young people’s mental health with the aim of encouraging other young people to open up. I was diagnosed with psychotic depression two years ago and so I feel it isimportant to help young people recognise mental health conditions and talk to someone if it gets too much.
Social action has helped me to deal with difficult issues in my life, learn new skills and become more confident. It gave me a voice, and helped me to meet new people.
