Throughout May on the blog I will be interviewing men around the issues of mental health. Sixty percent of people who are suffering from a mental health issue can wait up to one year before they tell anyone that they are suffering. This statistic from A Time To Change is shocking. Here at The Lily-Jo Project we are so passionate about people knowing its OK to share how they feel, and there is so much help available should you choose to access it.
This week in the UK it is Mental Health Awareness Week which highlights the issues surrounding mental health and aims to eliminate the stigma. I had the privilege of catching up with Ben Haenow to glean some perspective from him on how he has overcome certain areas in his life that have been difficult.
If you found this blog helpful don’t forget to subscribe and share. If you would like to follow more of Ben’s journey all the links are in the video description.
Thanks for your continued support.
