Greg backs mental health drive

Have your say

COMEDIAN Greg McHugh has given his backing to a new campaign to tackle the stigma of mental ill-health among young people.

The Gary: Tank Commander star, who is a former pupil of St Thomas of Aquin’s High, is encouraging 13 to 15-year-olds to take part in the latest campaign from See Me.

Secondary schools have been provided with multimedia resource packs to help them tackle the issue, with youth leaders also able to access information. It also has the backing of TV presenter Gok Wan.

He said: “Mental health problems among young people are more common than people may think and are often difficult to spot.

“That’s why it is important to listen as well as talk to your friends. It can make a big difference.

“I’m happy to support this great new campaign from See Me and hope that it will make a big difference for young people.”
