John Dennis is an adventurer and has campaigned extensively to raise awareness of mental health issues. Having struggled through deep depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, he has emerged on the other side and continues to proactively talk about his own experiences and to encourage others to open up.
John regularly sets off on challenging adventures in order to help raise the profile of depression, trauma and mental illness. John says that, “’getting connected’ with relevant people really aided my recovery… after all, you are only as good as the people you have supporting you.”
