Show 11. ‘Turning life around’ with Steve Carr of Mindcanyon

From a young age, Steve experienced physical and mental abuse by his parents and then received the devastating news that his elder brother had been killed, along with 5 other children, by a drunk driver. These experiences led to Steve turning to drugs and then, 25 years later, the trauma of his brother’s death finally caught up with him – Steve suffered a complete workplace mental health breakdown while standing in front of a client.

Steve’s journey is one of hope though. Following multiple suicide attempts, he made the decision to walk the length of Britain to speak to people from all walks of life about their experiences of our mental health system. Steve presented his findings to 10 Downing Street but he didn’t receive the response he had hoped for.
