In the thirty-first episode of the Just Checking In Podcast we spoke to mental health advocate Sam Evans.
Sam works in the pharmaceuticals industry in his full-time job but when one of his friends from University tragically took his own life, he felt compelled to do something.
Since that moment, Sam has done multiple successful ‘Movember’ campaigns, raising thousands of pounds for Movember UK and has raised awareness around men’s mental health in his hometown, his workplace and his social network.
In this pod we discussed Sam’s upbringing in the Welsh valleys and his hometown of Aberdare, the role that rugby had in his community and shaping him into the person he is today, his mental health journey, being seen as a mental health advocate and of course a mental health chat!
As always, #itsokaytovent
