Hey, I'm Katya. I'm 17 and I live in Kent.

I'm so happy about being chosen as a campaigner and I'm really excited to see the impact I can make!

My campaign is called Start Talking Mental and the main aim is to encourage more young people to talk openly about mental health.

A huge number of young people are affected by mental health issues, yet few know the facts and are willing to talk about mental health openly. This isn't helping with understanding the issues, or addressing the stigma surrounding them.

As always seems to be the case, just talking about these things can help, and I believe that talking about mental health will help to break down discrimination and spread awareness of the facts that young people need to know.

This will help in their understanding of people with problems, and help them take care of their own mental health!

So, thanks for reading this, and I hope you'll join me on my journey to change things. As I'm just starting out, my Twitter and Facebook pages are a little bare, so please feel free to join me. You can also show your support by signing up to my campaign.

Thanks and speak soon!
