Testimonal 

“Juliette’s work as an ambassador for Rethink Mental Illness has played an integral part in educating people on a topic that many have felt uncomfortable discussing. Her willingness to draw on her past in a light hearted way has been vital in helping us to challenge the stigma and taboo of a topic that directly affects so many.”
