’m passionate about helping people feel comfortable and confident in having conversations about mental health in the workplace.
Mental health is still seen as a taboo subject, yet we all have it, just like our physical health.
Some days it’s on form, others it’s not so good, it’s when it’s not so good we need to feel reassured there will be no repercussions if we discuss it with our line managers, and that they’ll understand
As well as being the managing director at Mindcanyon - Mental Health In Your Workplace, I also deliver…..
🧠 Mental health first aid
👔 Workplace well-being
👨🏻🏫 Suicide first-aid
I’ve been facilitating Mental Health and Workplace well-being courses since 2018 as an independent Instructor member for MHFA England and an Associate Tutor with National Centre for Suicide Prevention.
I’ve written many articles 📚 sat on several judging panels, written blogs 📖 and co-authored a book on emerging proud after Suicide 📕 I'vealso worked in the NHS as an IPS Service Manager, integrated within AWP NHS Trust early interventions and recovery mental health teams, managing a team of employment specialists supporting people back into work after experiencing poor mental health or mental illnesses.
Where it all began.
In 2014 I experienced a mental health breakdown at work, sadly there were no mental health firsts aiders or anybody at work I could speak to about my struggles.
In 2015 I created my business Mindcanyon on a mobile phone 📲 whilst walking one end of the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 to the other in 90 days, raising awareness for mental health & homelessness whilst also sleeping in a tent ⛺️ in recovery from PTSD, addiction, high functioning anxiety, work related stress, depression, unresolved childhood trauma, and multiple suicide attempts.
I made a promise to myself and others that I would do everything in my power to ensure nobody had to go through what I did in the workplace due to lack of education and understanding about mental health.
💡 My insights and knowledge come from academic studies, qualifications and lived experience.
