East Antrim MLAs have lent their support to a major new campaign encouraging the public to share stories of those who have taken control of their mental health to lead fulfilling lives.
David Hilditch and Roy Beggs attended the launch of the ‘You Can Take Control’ campaign in the Long Gallery recently and voiced their backing for the campaign.
The scheme was launched by mental health charity MindWise, which has set up a YouTube channel allowing service users and volunteers to upload videos telling their stories.
The charity is encouraging the public to share their own experiences online and via social media. The videos from the public and politicians can be viewed at www.youtube.com/user/MindWisenv
Volunteers can upload videos directly to the site or by sending them to firstname.lastname@example.org
