Conor Mason, Lead Singer of Nothing But Thieves, said:“Mental Health affects us all just as physical health. Just because we can't see what's in someone's head doesn't mean it's not happening. This is something that's been a big part of my life and has affected me and many around me. We need to change the way we talk about people experiencing mental health difficulties. It is very very real.”
#IAMWHOLE is the brainchild of the NHS and YMCA as a direct response to mental health difficulties experienced by young people throughout the UK. This year #IAMWHOLE is focused on the effects and frequency of harmful language, and what we can all do to combat this.
High-profile names including Ed Sheeran, James Corden, Liam Gallagher, Dermot O’Leary and Rizzle Kicks’ Jordan Stephens have already lent their support to the campaign.
Denise Hatton, Chief Executive for YMCA England & Wales, said:
“We’re thrilled to have Nothing But Thieves on board this year, their young fan base is exactly the type of audience we want to reach with our message. Through their support we can show young people that there really is no shame in talking about mental health difficulties. We hope more young people will be encouraged to open up and seek help if they see and hear about the very personal mental health experiences of Nothing But Thieves.”
