Our ambassadors

We are proud that the first ambassadors of Mental Health UK are Jonny Benjamin MBE and Neil Laybourn.

Jonny Benjamin is an award-winning mental health campaigner. At the age of 20 he was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, a combination of schizophrenia and bipolar. His 2014 social media campaign with one of the Mental Health UK founding charities, Rethink Mental Illness, to #FindMike, reunited him with Neil Laybourn, the man who talked him out of jumping off a bridge when he was suicidal.

The #FindMike campaign was the subject of a Channel 4 documentary, The Stranger On The Bridge. Jonny and Neil now work together full-time visiting schools, hospitals, prisons and workplaces across the UK to talk about mental health and suicide prevention.
