My Mind and Me


Radio 1 have just launched a campaign around mental health to run throughout 2017. Called My Mind & Me, it will give young people a platform to explore & discuss a broad spectrum of issues around their mental health.

Dealing with stress and pressure around exams; to self-esteem, confidence & body image; to anxiety and depression it covers all areas of mental well-being. Mental health issues can be notoriously difficult to talk about, thanks to the stigma surrounding them in years gone by, but it doesn’t have to be that way – and your favourite famous faces are starting to agree.


This article should hopefully let young people know they are not alone with their mental health concerns. When famous people are talking about how their own mental health isn’t perfect it shows that mental health issues are something that can affect anyone at any time.
