- Judge's comment
Mind and the award judges would like to give special thanks to the other entrants:
Claire Eastham, We're All Mad Here
Claire been writing about her experiences with social anxiety and panic attacks since 2013. During her recovery she felt that the majority of mental health resources were either too clinical or misery memoirs and vowed that once her health improved, she would document her experiences without the use of unexplained medical jargon.
Laura Darrall, #ITAFFECTSME
Laura's blog focuses on a campaign which aims to get people talking, to start conversations about mental health and to encourage people to be brave about seeking help. She asks people to take a selfie with a post-it note on their forehead with #itaffectsme written on it, upload it on social media and then share.
