David has committed the rest of his working life to reducing the stigma of mental health in the workplace.

He enjoyed a successful career in newspapers and magazines for over 30 years, and was general manager of a regional daily newspaper and commercial director for Auto Trader.

He always knew that he wanted to do something different at the latter end of his career, he just didn’t know what that would be! He now feels he has found true purpose in life and wants to make a positive difference to fellow mental health sufferers.

David would also like to help employers gain a greater understanding of how they can best support their employees.

He is also a qualified Mental Health Counsellor affiliated to the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Practitioners).
