"Taking part in This is Me allowed me to share the experience lockdown had on my mental health. As a single mother I felt it was important to share my story and coping mechanisms in the hope it would help people talk about their own mental health.

Networking and listening to others has played a huge part in developing my self-awareness and understanding the world around me. My hope is that by opening up the conversation now, we are leading the way and normalising it for our children to talk about their own mental health in years to come.”
