‘An inspirational read’ Matt Haig
Join broadcaster and mental health advocate Jake Tyler on an inspirational walk along the riverside in Guildford. Now in his 30s Jake has struggled with mental health problems all his life. After a bad period of depression, he decided to take back control of his life, and with only a pair of walking boots and a backpack, he left his old life behind and began a 3000-mile walk around Britain. Jake will talk about his extraordinary journey, the places he visited, the people he met, the big, honest conversations he had, and how he finally started to see a more positive future.
Jake’s show on BBC Surrey and Sussex, Open Up with Jake Tyler, launched in 2019. His TedX talk, I’m fine has received 3.1 million views.
