Mental Health and Well-being Presentation

Andrew Hall

In 2010, I was a burnt out headteacher hospitalised by stress; today I’m a successful consultant and speaker. In this talk I’ll share my journey of recovery and how the darkest of times led to a self-understanding that usually moderates any periods of mental ill-health. Through my story, I hope to help you identify when things aren’t going well, share some prevention strategies that work for me, and help people speak more respectfully about mental health.

This is a uniquely personal story of mental health that is shocking, poignant and funny. Some people call this ‘lived experience’, but I feel I just have a story to tell. What I learnt as an hospital inpatient will surprise you, but it opened my eyes to user experience. Whilst I was most ill in 2010, I knew there had been difficult times before, in childhood and adolescence, and now I know why.

This presentation is around 60 – 75 minutes and is suitable for conferences or as a twilight session in a CPD programme.
