Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust, UK

Kwame Osei Owusu is a young Ghanaian-born individual, who grew up in Edmonton, North London. He is a 2021 Master of Pharmacy (MPharm) graduate, multifaceted individual who is currently a band 5 hospital mental health trainee pharmacist in the NHS and an award-winning social activist who has been recognised by Black Impact Awards in 2021 and the Diana Awards 2022 for his works in mental health advocacy using his social media platform and online conferences. His works are affecting the community positively through sharing of my personal experience with depression and the measures I have been taking to maintain a positive mental health after his recovery. He has been newly appointed in 2023 as one of the youth advisory boards for the Changemakers Programme at the Diana Awards. His role would enable me to collaborate with UK Youth, Centre for Mental Health and the Diana Awards to create content for professionals who seek to incorporate young people in their work. His personal experience with mental health in 2015 has given me the confidence in raising awareness on this good cause. His passion for advocating on good mental health since 2017 also stems from the experience of a friend around me that he had supported in their phases of mental health crises. This has encouraged him to add his voice to different online seminars and conversations as well as using my social media platforms to educate my followers. His aim is to help remove the stigmatism associated with mental health disorders in the Black community through education.
