Asa kind, chatty, and good-humoured man with a zest for life and a passion forhelping people, Chris Young adored his job as a social worker. But things fellapart when, in 2008, he was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. Hisillness brought about the end of his calling and he found himself in need of anew project and purpose.
And so it came to be that in2011 Chris began a campaign called Walk a Mile In my Shoes. He walks around theedge of the UK - the edge of society being where many people with mental healthproblems feel they are - without spending any money and relying on the kindnessof strangers.
In 2015 he joined forces with See Me Scotlandto distil the success of the coastal walk into a series of events, invitingother people to join him and discuss mental health. He encouraged them toliterally walk a mile in each other's shoes.
