‘He was interested in why I was so attached to this penguin’ Bex is at university when she starts feeling anxious and overwhelmed. As Bex deteriorates, doctors are in a race against time to diagnose her. And that’s where the penguin comes in.
In Room 5, Helena Merriman interviews people who - like her - were changed by a diagnosis.
