About this Event
Student Wellbeing Centre presents: Jonny Benjamin MBE and actor Danny Rahim. This talk is to mark University Mental Health Day 2020. Jointly run by Student Minds and UMHAN, University Mental Health Day encourages students and staff across the UK to run events and campaigns to promote awareness and support for students at universities to manage their wellbeing.

Jonny and Danny studied acting together at The Manchester School of Theatre. Years later, after individually experiencing lapses in their own mental health, they reconnected to discuss learnings from the years apart and how they could use this knowledge to help and enable others in similar situations.

Their story 'So close and yet so far' aims to educate people on the importance of openness and communication and that by being sensitive and compassionate to those around us we can actually save lives. Jonny and Danny are deeply passionate about removing the stigma attached to mental health.

Jonny's 2014 social media campaign with Rethink Mental Illness to #findMike, the man who talked him out of jumping off a bridge when he was suicidal, went viral and led to Jonny becoming a prominent spokesperson on the subject of suicide.

Jonny and Danny hope that by sharing their stories they can enable others to manage their own health and well-being when faced with difficult or challenging circumstances.
