Hi I’m Mark, I’m 49 years old. After 30 years in the construction industry, I now manage a small fishery in Worcestershire. Having worked in male dominated environments for so long, it’s clear that men don’t talk about their issues. For me, a difficult childhood led to depression and anxiety as a young man which in turn led to a suicide attempt. Surviving this, I opted for professional help and today I go from strength to strength. I recently joined ‘Tough Enough’ to help spread the word…don’t suffer in silence, don’t be afraid to ask for help. I now run weekly peer to peer support groups on behalf of TETC at various locations giving much needed support to the community.
