Mindcanyon was founded in 2015 by Steve Carr after he experienced a nervous breakdown whilst at work.
Sadly there were no mental health first-aiders, EAP (Employer Assistance Programme) or occupational health advisors to reach out to.
After being signed off work with work-related stress, Steve started his journey in understanding more about mental health and well-being.
He returned to work only to be placed on a performance improvement plan as his organisation were not equipt to deal with or recognise the signs of somebody struggling with their mental health.
Within a month, Steve was managed out of the company; this had a disastrous impact on his mental health which was now in rapid decline resulting in multiple suicide attempts.
Steve decided to seek professional interventions and help, leading him to walk the entire length of Britain, raising awareness for both mental health and homelessness, and speaking with organisations that were helping people with both issues.
His inspirational story has reached thousands of people, offering hope, showing recovery and life transformation are both possible.
