Stephen Fry gets behind Doc Ready

We’re delighted that Stephen Fry, English actor, screenwriter, author, playwright, journalist, poet and comedian (to name just a few of his many talents) has given his support for the Doc Ready Project.

Stephen had this to say about Doc Ready:

“The support that Doc Ready gives young people is vital to help them become the healthy and confident adults that they deserve to be. The teenage years are an important period to address mental health issues and Doc Ready is a great tool to help young people through a difficult time.”

Stephen is well known for his activism around a range of mental health issues and he often writes about his own experiences battling cyclothymia, a form of bipolar disorder (Only The Lonely is a particularly brilliant recent post).

His most notable work in the area is The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive, a two-part television documentary that explored the effects of living with bipolar disorder, based on the experiences of Stephen, other celebrities and members of the public with, or affected by, the disorder.

We’re gearing up for the launch of Doc Ready and Stephen’s support is a real boost to the team behind the project and the young people we’ve worked with in developing the tool.
