KATE THORNTON: As well as the youth mental health ambassador role for the government, you've also started to take your mental health awareness campaign to OnlyFans. And I love this about you, Alex, where you turn up where you're least expected.
ALEX GEORGE: The whole reason we were interested about that space is that so many people that maybe are on there as consumers or people that are actually creating content, they can be struggling with their mental health, too. And actually-- I mean OnlyFans is used for lots of different reasons, but I guess the high-profile stuff is whether people are showing, like, modeling pictures. They talk about porn and things on there, porn addiction can be a really big thing.
So I wanted to take mental health to the space that people are in. So mental health support should be wherever people are, and there isn't really any support on there. So that was why I wanted to create content. Obviously, the content I was making was free to access, et cetera, et cetera. But yeah, you're right. People don't expect it there.
