A young Arbroath woman is on a mission to get young people talking about their feelings.
As part of the ‘Foolish Optimism’ roadshow, which is currently touring Scotland following the release of the film of the same name, Leigh Addis (26), a member of the Foolish Optimism working group, met with a range of Angus charities and young people yesterday (Tuesday 20 November 2018) to discuss the topic of mental health.
Leigh, who suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and anxiety, has lived with mental health problems most of her life, as has her mother. After leaving Arbroath Academy eight years ago, Leigh’s mental health worsened during college and has largely been unable to work since. However, Leigh is keen to stress that there is help out there, and that talking to others can make a huge difference.
