Campaign: To help those with post- traumatic stress disorder to find support

Having experienced mental health issues myself, I know how difficult they can be for a young person to deal with.


Many people keep their problems quiet because they fear being ridiculed or not taken seriously, especially in school.


With Fixers, my team and I have helped to create a poster campaign to increase understanding of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) which is something I have experienced.


It aims to show that PTSD can often be the root cause of other mental health issues such as depression and anxiety.


I hope the campaign will encourage others with similar problems to realise it’s never too late to get help and that speaking out is the first step towards recovery.
