Who was Indie Walker?

Walker hailed from Hampshire, South East England and gained a following for her videos advocating mental health.

Their content included documenting hospital appointments and life in a psychiatric ward. However, their clips of encouragement were a fan-favourite since they understood what others were going through; they were a support system for many.

Walker suffered from Dissociative Identity Disorder (DIDS) and multiple chronic illnesses: hypermobile type Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (hEDS), gastroparesis and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS).

Because of their disabilities, they were unable to qualify as a paramedic, a childhood dream of theirs.

The TikToker also ran their own online store selling crystals, called IndieBits.
