or you can view it on link below:

This time last year, when 39 year old Kris was referred to Motiv8, he was at his lowest ebb. He had been suffering with depression for some time and was also recovering from thyroid cancer. He was then made redundant and didn’t know where to turn. He said:

“To the outside world I look normal, it’s not obvious that I’ve got mental health issues and one of the things about Motiv8 is that they look at the whole situation and not just individual elements… They have given me so many useful opportunities and I’ve grabbed them with both hands. I just want to say to people that there is help out there. Don’t be afraid to ask, even if you’re a man!”

Can we help you or do you know anyone that needs some support to get back on track?
