Men’s mental health – John’s lived experience

In this series John, a social worker, talks about his experiences with mental health difficulties.

On qualifying as a social worker in 2021, John worked in statutory services as part of his local health and social care partnership before recently moving to the third sector as part of a Public Social Partnership where he works with adults who have experienced psychological trauma. John has experienced complex interpersonal trauma symptoms since childhood and wanted to share his story as a way to help destigmatise conversations about mental health and suicide and encourage others to seek support.
