My story

On the 29th of October 2020 my younger brother Kevin took his own life. Sadly I wasn't there for him, I just didn't spot the signs. Mental health, although becoming a less taboo subject in recent times, is something that many people are guilty of having a lack of understanding of. Maybe with more education we could have spotted some signs and had the tools available to us to have helped Kevin. Mindout is a mental health charity that does work to support the LGBTQ+ community and to make mental health a community concern.

Kevin was gay, he had mental health issues and he committed suicide. While Kevin was with us these were never subjects that were discussed openly. Education, information, acceptance, support and openness around these subjects I truly believe could stop someone else getting to the point that Kevin did.

I ran a half marathon 10 years ago and genuinely believed I was going to dine out on that for the rest of my days - I cannot believe I am going to do that twice over. Brighton Marathon is one small thing that I can (try to) do to to raise awareness of this subject. So please, dig deep... I promise to make this look as hard as it sounds.
