What a journey Scott Squire has been on with his health and wellbeing. Hear his inspirational story at our WHISTalks - "Your Mental Health" event at Harraby Community Centre on 12th October
Scott Squire has suffered with mental and physical problems for some years. He recently found PowerLifting as both a release for his mental health problems and a weight loss technique. Since he started training his has lost 11 stone in weight and after just 18 months in the sport was invited to be part of the GB team at the World Championships in Texas which took part in April of this year. Scott is also now retraining as a Mental Health Nurse at the University of Cumbria and is just going into his second year.

 

We're very much looking forward to hearing Rod Anderson speak at our WHISTalks event on 12th October.
Rod speaks openly and with good humour about his relationship with addiction, having recovered from alcoholism. Since losing his job and rebuilding his life, Rod has achieved amazing things which he would never have dreamt of previously. He proudly started working for Carlisle Eden Mind earlier this year as a Volunteer Support Worker and trains people in Recovery Coaching.

 

We're delighted to be welcoming Kate Bainbridge to speak our community WHISTalks even on 12th October at Harraby Community Centre
Kate lost her son, Ben Osborne to suicide in 2014. She is Deputy Head at Alston Moor Federation and her son worked at the Penrith Leisure Centre. His death had a ripple effect across the community. One of his closest friends, Jon, along with Jon’s brother, ran the London Marathon this year and helped to raise over £7000 for Suicide Prevention across Cumbria.
When Kate speaks about her experiences she captivates an audience with the rawness of her experiences. She works closely with the Suicide Safer Eden group to raise awareness of suicide as a community wide issue.
