Billy's values

A group of young people sit around a table talking to each other. The person closest to the camera as the back to the camera and wears a dark red knitted jumper.

Why are you on the Youth Panel at YoungMinds?

I decided to be part of the Youth Panel so I could help YoungMinds reach more young people because as someone who has been present with many that don’t understand mental health, I think it is important for people to be fully educated.

Which of our values do you relate to most, and why do you think it’s an important value for us?

The value I relate the most to is: 'we're optimistic'.

Even though things don’t always pan out successfully, I feel like if you’re optimistic, you can receive the positive energy for success in whatever it is that you want!
