Sean doing the Yorks mud run in aid of Mind.

A YOUNG Dewsbury man is fundraising for a mental health charity.

Shaun Stenhouse, an aspiring PE teacher, dropped out of Cardiff Metropolitan University after being diagnosed with depression last year.

The 20-year-old said he began experiencing insomnia, panic attacks and even depersonalization.

He said: "Depersonalization made me feel like life was passing by in front of my eyes.

"I feared to speak, not because I didn't want to, merely because I couldn't remember.

"I felt lost and alone, even though I had a family in Cardiff around me."

Shaun moved back home and started a course of anti-depressants, as well as going to counselling.

He wants to raise money for the charity, Mind, in memory of his school friend Hannah Webster.

Hannah, 20, from Dewsbury, was found hanged from a tree in allotments near Essex university , where she was a student, on May 12.

Shaun, who now works as a customer assistant in Tesco, will complete the 2017 Yorkshire Tough Mudder mud run in Skipton this month.
