A teenager’s perspective
Some very exciting news from the weekend!
As I mentioned in my previous post Article courtesy of Anna Dutton I was asked to write an article on mental health for a local magazine.
To make the article suit the magazine’s target audience I had to write something that would speak to proper grown ups, so I decided to reach out to parents with teenage children who struggle with their own mental health and how, from my experiences as a teenager, is best to help.
The article is only in print for the moment so here’s a copy of it for everyone to read:
You can imagine my surprise and happiness when a friend of mine sent me a text saying
“Look what I found” with a picture of me in a magazine attached!
This article is a very proud moment for me and already I’ve had a wonderful response from both parents and teenagers alike who have read it.
Maybe there will be more articles to come in future, who knows but I am dedicated to spreading mental health awareness and fighting all the stigmas attached.
