Hi,

I'm Tom

I have various mental health issues and am passionate to break down the walls of mental health stigma.

In my darkest days I felt as if I was the only person  experiencing mental health issues. I thought my career was over; I was stamped with a label negating who I was and what I was about.


My intentions are simple -  that no single person go though the deathly torment I went through in the early days of pre-diagnosis. I want you to have ready access to help; a platform for self-help, support, motivation and inspiration.
