National mental health campaigner Jonny Benjamin, who is backing Second Step's #WhatMakesMeWell campaign, joined our volunteer Claire Robinson-Ayres on BBC Radio Bristol. They spoke to Breakfast Show host Emma Britton about the campaign and why it is important.

Earlier in the morning, our chief executive Aileen Edwards joined Emma to explain the campaign is part of our 30th birthday celebrations. Second Step started life in 1987 with a small band of passionate volunteers. Thirty years on and volunteers are still playing a hugely important role in the organisation.

#WhatMakesMeWell promotes looking after your mental health by doing the simple things in life which make you feel well and happy. If you would like to hear the radio interviews with Jonny, Claire and Aileen, you can stream the show on the BBC website by following this link. The two segments are at 35:55 and 1:36:04.
