Gillian Anderson has joined up with MQ mental health to raise much needed awareness for mental health in young people.
Gillian had her own experience with mental health as child, telling The guardian‘ “I was put in therapy at 14! And that started a different path for me, and all the energy I was putting into self-destruction and ‘poor me, and nobody understands me’, I started to funnel into what I was going to do with my life.”

MQ’s mission is “to create a world where mental illness is understood, effectively treated, and ultimately prevented. With the help of our supporters and a global network of leading scientists we can make this a reality. Together we are championing and funding research into mental health that will change millions of lives.”
The first step is awareness.
Many other celebrities including Mel C from the Spice girls are supporting the campaign and you too can create and create your photo of support too on the MQ website.
