A young blogger whose poor mental health left her too afraid to leave her house has held a fundraising day for Mind.

Molly Garnham, 24, has donated more than £1,200 to the mental health charity following an event at Rough Diamond tattoo studio in Stowmarket, which she runs with her husband, Bryce.

She said: “I have suffered with anxiety and depression since I was 15 so I wanted to raise awareness because it’s a real taboo subject.

“I have a blog which people say really helps so I thought I would put on this day to try and raise awareness.

“I ended up housebound for two years. I was terrified. It got me really bad.”

Mrs Garnham writes a blog about her experiences with poor mental health called Anxiety and Me.
