Hey, thank you for the question. Yes, this might make the role more difficult- but that doesn’t mean I’ll do a bad job, in fact I’d argue quite the opposite. Since the age of 12, everything I have achieved has been done in tandem with me juggling a plethora of mental health issues. I am well experienced with managing my mental health alongside difficult situations, and I don’t think it prevents me from achieving great things. Additionally, I also think this sends out a positive message to students, particularly those who may feel that their mental health is a barrier for their progression. My decision to be open about my mental health in my campaign is to show our students that we are capable of anything, regardless of our mental health issues.
