|Having good mental health and wellbeing is important because it shapes how you think and feel about yourself as well as others. Your mental health can also affect how you deal with everyday life events, such as relationships and coping with change. Don’t hide thinking it is just you. Everybody feels a range of emotions. It is how you deal with it, that will make a difference. It is important for everyone to look after their mental health just as they look after their physical health.|
Who am I? - is a website created by and for young people about their experience of mental ill-health. The site invites young people to record and upload a YouTube video in which they hold up a series of hand-written cards that explain their personal journey. Alternatively they can view videos that other have uploaded under the headings of Depression, Eating Disorders, Self-Harm, Stress & Anxiety as well as Clinicians and Parents. This site was developed in conjunction with the CAMHs team at 5 Boroughs Partnership.
