Male Carers Group welcomes Joe Collins, Mental Health Advocate

Charity News 14 October 2021

At the last male carers social group, we had the pleasure of welcoming guest speaker and mental health advocate, Joe Collins.

Author, Life & Fitness Coach and ex rugby league player, Joe Collins from Winstanley, has written From Dark Times To Brighter Days, a hard-hitting, emotional book which captures his experiences with depression and how he has turned his life around.

The 26-year-old, a former Warrington Wolves player and now a personal trainer, has long been a champion of the mental health cause, and has taken part in many charitable efforts. He has decided that now is the time to tell his story and share his positive habits, with the ultimate goal of helping others turn around their unenviable situations.

He spoke to carers about positive mental health habits he uses on a daily basis and how these can be incorporated and adapted to suit carers lives.

Thank you Joe for taking the time to come and speak at the Carers Centre. Thank you also for presenting some of our male carers with their archery certificates and medals.

Our next Male Carers Group is Wednesday 3rd November 2021 at 1 pm. Booking can be made here.
