Our Jamie Sanchez, IT Helpdesk Projects Team Leader, courageously shares his battles with mental health. Please consider supporting his chosen charity, Mind, via the link below.
Fighting for Mind
“Some of you may know I suffer severely with my mental health with diagnosed disorders. Whilst I do try and not let this effect my day to day life, I am constantly fighting an internal battle that has led to numerous stints with the crisis team. I’ve recently gone through my most recent crisis and am now back in recovery with the community mental health team.
Mental health does not just affect me, it affects millions around the world.
I’ve decided this time round to focus my mind on something that will aid in my recovery and hopefully prevent me relapsing whilst also making other lifestyle changes.
“You are not your illness. You have an individual story to tell. You have a name, a history, a personality. Staying yourself is part of the battle.”
On April 14th 2024 I will be competing in three two minute rounds of mixed martial arts after completing an eight week camp with bad company gym in Leeds, the event will take place in Pryzm nightclub in Leeds and I would like to raise as much money as possible for such a great cause.

There will also be tickets available for the event closer to the time if anyone wants to come watch!”
