Paranoid, anxious, depressed, difficult feelings to express but more so if you are a teenager that is one of the messages behind a campaign about mental health in young people.
Carly Townsend from Birmingham was just 14 when she started to hear voices. Fear of being treated differently stopped her from seeking help.
It wasn't until 5 years later that Carly acknowledged she had a problem.
An event to raise awareness of mental health issues and how they affect young people was held in Birmingham today.
Suffering from mental health problems can be a terrifying experience at any age but especially if you are a teenager, today's event hoped to breakdown some of the stigma associated with words like depression and schizophrenia through a range of activities young people are sharing their own personal stories with members of the public.
Stigma and discrimination on the grounds of mental illnesss stops young people from doing an awful lot of stuff, it stops them from achieving their true potential they don't apply for college it puts them off relationships and interacting in the way we would want every teenager to be able to do.
The film made by the event organisers Time to change is going to be shown in schools across the West Midlands.
It is hoped the time to change campaign will reduce the fear around mental health and encourage more young people to come forward for help.
