THINK TANK - Mental Health | George's Story - Episode 6

THINK TANK - Mental Health | George's Story - Episode 6

In this episode, I spoke to George Watkins, a student and advocate for mental health awareness. George was recently elected as the Mental Health Campaign Officer for Cardiff University Students' Union and told me his story of suffering with, battling and overcoming anxiety and depression over the past 7 years.

George's story is an inspirational one. You hear how he has overcome such a struggle with mental health and how he is now able to give back to those who helped him and help others.

Mental health is not to go unnoticed, it affects as many as 1 in 4 per year in the United Kingdom.

If you feel you need support with mental health and wellbeing, don't feel alone, here are some support helplines;
UK: Call the Samaritans on 116 123 or call Mind Info-line on 0300 123 3393
USA: mentalhealth.gov or call 1‑877‑SAMHSA7 (1‑877‑726‑4727)
