Senior Consultant – Adult Social Care
“Something I am very passionate about – too many men suffer in silence as they think they are being strong and getting on with it. The key thing I have learnt in recent years is that asking or looking for help is not a sign of weakness, it’s showing that you have the strength to take positive action to improve your own health and wellbeing and in turn, that of those around you.
“It is paramount that you take time for yourself, take a step back and recharge, so you can help others. The detail of what you do, in the time you set aside for yourself is a personal thing, exercise, taking a bath, having a couple of hours on the Playstation, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is the realisation that you need to look after yourself as a priority and make that happen on a regular basis.”
