Recently our Community Correspondents interviewed each other as part of our age and wellbeing series. John has a powerful story to share, emphasising that it’s never to late to seek support and talk about mental health. #TimeToTalk
I feel good in my sixties. It’s only in the last seven years that I’ve been able to speak out about my past. Opening up makes all the difference. It takes away the nightmares.
I had a really traumatic experience in my teenage years. I wish I’d been encouraged to speak out sooner.
My physical health has got worse as I’ve got older, but being able to deal with my past means I feel better within myself.
