Rizzle Kicks singer Jordan Stephens fronts mental health campaign

Singer Jordan Stephens, who is one half of the band Rizzle Kicks, has launched an anti-stigma campaign to raise awareness surrounding mental health issues in young people.

It is in partnership with the youth charity YMCA.

YMCA research shows one in three young people with mental health difficulties feels stigmatised, with more than a third saying it happens at least once a week.

To coincide with World Mental Health Day, the singer has worked with the NHS to produce its first ever music video. His song Whole is using social media to connect with young people through the hashtag #IAMWHOLE.

He said: "I wrote Whole to express how I was feeling at the bottom of a situation.

"When the NHS suggested it could be used to give other people a way of feeling less alone, man that felt really good."
