Personal Quote:

On being awarded the OBE: This is the happiest day of my life. I can't believe they were talking about me. I chose the Priory as the place to receive the OBE to celebrate the fact that the stigma around mental health is becoming a thing of the past. There's nothing to be ashamed of.

Trivia:

In 2009 Ruby Wax became the patron of the UK charity Depression Alliance, and works to raise awareness about mental health. (Interview in Spring 2009 edition of DA's magazine "A Single Step"). See more »
