Joe has been best buds with You Me & Anxiety's creator, Dan, since they were three. He has learnt a lot about himself thanks to Dan and his journey with mental health, finally starting to make sense of why his video games have to be in a perfectly neat stack.  

Joe is also up for a challenge and has taken on the loving title of 'In-House Guinea Pig' for his dedication to 'The Lab'.

Stephanie Lucas


Stephanie grew up with intense emotional outbursts before being diagnosed with various mental illnesses. Being a normal grown-up was too difficult until Stephanie found writing as her therapy.

Someone who used to think burying her problems was the best solution, she’s now finding the strength that comes with being truthful about your experiences.
