1 in 5 living in rural areas suffer with mental health

One in five of us living in rural areas have mental health problems, with the level of support at a worrying low.

That's according to a report by the charity Solent MIND.

The report found that people living in remote areas were particularly affected by issues such as depression and anxiety.

ITV News has partnered up with the Media Trust for an initiative that gives people who wouldn't normally have the chance to work in news, an opportunity to report on a subject close to their heart.

This year's candidate, Rachel Edge, made the below report.

Interviewees are: Nick Viney, Jonathan Jones and Lesley Anthony.
