“Digital mental health and wellbeing isn’t something that’s often talked about, we talk about the trolls and the negative news feed but we need to think deeper about how we treat each other and connect online, especially now we are more reliant than ever – Cybersmile do great work to promote this and create safe spaces and it’s something I feel passionate about with my own community on Twitch – creating a positive atmosphere online.”
Claire Lim, Founder, WeeCon
Claire is also one of MCM Comic Con’s main hosts, hosting stages and interviews with the likes of Simon Pegg, Sean Astin, David Harbour and Sebastian Stan, in front of live audiences.
