From his experiences of working as a nurse and suffering from depression himself, Sam Tyrer decided he wanted to do something to raise awareness to tackle mental health issues facing people in Lancashire.

We’ve seen reduction in self-harm, people reaching out for support and much more. We are now creating a joint offer with other organisations including Lancashire Mind.” Change Talks also organise events and seminars in schools, workplaces and the community to help reduce the stigma of mental health.
