We're so happy to announce that Jade has WON the BBC Devon's 'Make a Difference Awards' in the category of Volunteer.
The judges picked Jade's work speaking to over 35,000 pupils at primary and secondary schools about mental health. She shares her own story and aims to be "the person I wish had spoken to me when I was at my lowest", to destigmatise mental health and encourage others that they can get through this difficult time.

It was absolutely fantastic to be contacted by BBC Devon and be told our 18-year old co-founder, Jade, has reached the final three of their 'Make A Difference Awards' in the category of 'Volunteer'.
Since the age of 11, Jade has been visiting primary and secondary school to discuss her mental health troubles and recovery.

In her words "I want to be the person I wish had come and spoken to me when I was at my lowest".
