Project Description

Kay Kennedy

Age 19, England – South West

I’ve suffered from mental health issues most of my life, including almost six years as an in-patient.

Now I want to speak up on behalf of myself and others to make the mental health care system more nurturing and helpful.

I spend all my free time supporting my community, including volunteering at the Bristol Royal Infirmary, at a local retirement village and for St John Ambulance.

Volunteering has made me more confident and independent. I no longer need a carer with me at all times. So maybe the best part of social action has been finding myself.
