I work as a qualified doctor in Wales. I also live with Bipolar Affective Disorder with associated psychosis. I love rugby, long walks and drinking coffee!

They have allowed me to progress to a point in my life where I am confident enough to talk about my mental health, which I hope in turn, allows others to open up about their issues.
