Helping a friend through a tough time
It's Mental Health Week and we're focusing on how you can help a

ambassador, Channel 11 presenter Ash London. Ash has filmed a video
with us sharing her experience of a friend turning to her for help.

Charlie v The Big Secret
To also mark Mental Health Week the next phase of our 'we've got your back' campaign has been
released. It deals with young people who are feeling the
pressure to hide their sexuality.
The concept, 'Charlie versus the Big Secret', depicts the
internal conflict that a LGBTI young person might experience due to
the fear of rejection and judgement.
