What People Are Saying
“Ruth's sessions on mental "wealth" and anxiety were not only engaging, they were interactive and even fun. Mental illness is not something that is easy for people to talk, let alone laugh about, but Ruth's openness to talk about her own struggles and relate to her audience made it so much easier for people to open up. Her sessions received the highest praise out of all of the speakers I booked.”
“No Panic is truly honoured to have Ruth Cooper-Dickson as a patron and spokesperson for the charity. She has shown so much support for the cause and her honesty and openness about her personal journey with mental health makes her genuinely relatable to our many service users. We are thrilled to have her onboard with the charity and excited for what the future holds.”
"Ruth is a sharp and shrewd individual who deeply cares about the work she does. I would argue what Ruth doesn’t know about mental health probably isn’t worth knowing.”
