My name is Mike Turlin and I’m the founder of Bentley Mental Health and Construction Buddies and now www.abrokenmind.org.
I am also a project manager within the construction industry and a passionate mental health in construction campaigner.
In 2009, I tried to end my life on more than one occasion. A family member and also my best friend both died within a short period of time, my marriage ended and I was made redundant. Thankfully, those attempts failed.
A Broken Mind
To give them the chance to open up about their mental health issues,after starting Bentley Mental Health & Construction Buddies I wanted to do more, the idea of a broken mind is to travel the Uk to companies and show their staff it’s good to Talk.
Promoting positive Mental Health
I help fund free counselling
Help me to help others that are suffering here in the Uk by donating to our charity
Remember it’s Good to Talk and have the ability to Listen
