We first got to know Lucy when she got in touch in response to our question: What does mental illness look like? She kindly took this powerful photograph for us, including the #StopStigma hashtag, to represent her experiences of living with anxiety. 

Lucy experienced anxiety attacks for years before she was able to secure a diagnosis. She is now fighting to raise awareness of her condition, and encouraging young people to talk and listen to each other, empowering them to open up about their mental health. Read more about Lucy's journey below.
