We were joined by Danny Rahim, an actor and mental health ambassador who has starred in the likes of Primeval, Unforgiven, Eastenders and Vera. Danny is also qualified in L3 Counselling Studies (CPCAB), Adult & Youth MHFA (MHFA England), Suicide First Aid and Ambassador of Hope (Ofqual)
Alongside our previous guest Jonny Benjamin MBE, Danny has spent the last four years educating schools, universities and companies on the stigma that can surround mental health as well as talking openly about his own experiences with mental health, including looking after members of his own family during challenging times.
Danny shared an insight into his own experiences and offered his thoughts on supporting those around you, and answered your questions about supporting loved ones.
