Have your say

CAITLIN Newdall’s story of her battle with depression and self harm, and her attempts to take her own life was heartbreaking in its honesty.

Our #speakyourmind campaign aims to highlight such battles, the difficulty in accessing the right treatment and to encourage people to talk about mental health.

She has spoken in an extremely powerful way and her words will resonate with many young people - and their families – who face similar struggles.

Everyone’s story will be different but sharing those stories will help to give a voice to things which are hard to say. Thank you Caitlin.
