My name is Ryan Thompson. I am currently a personal trainer with an extensive background in social work following 14 years with several local authorities.
Even today, my work as a personal trainer involves a large part of transferable skills that I use daily to engage with people. Exercise has helped many people talk about their personal problems, to which I now feel the need and passion to share my story and experiences to men to allow them to talk openly without judgment about their emotions. It’s time to cut the stigma.
I am determined to cut the stigma attached to men talking about their mental health, enabling men to understand and listen to others about their health too. We’ve only just started but our groups have been held successfully with feedback that has been used to move forward with other men coming on board to facilitate group sessions for men to talk.
