At the start of the year, I was delighted to be asked by a member of staff from Fixers to come along and take part in a nation wide event called The Feel Happy Fix which would allow us fixers to represent the views and opinions of young people who have experience of mental health issues/conditions, with the aim of making Britain a happier place for young people.
The main event took place in London on the 11th of March and consisted of a morning of workshops relating at the British Film Institute followed by a live debate at the ITV studios which was aired on Youtube.
At the event, I had the chance to meet hundreds of other young people who had created Fixers projects relating to mental health and wellbeing and others who have been affected by bereavement.
It was a wonderful opportunity to hear how others had dealt with grief and loss and to hear them all campaigning so strongly to raise awareness about mental health issues amongst young people.
At the event I also had the opportunity to meet my local MSP and hear her feedback and positive messages about my website.
