Spent tonight talking with my Dad to Jewish community in Hendon about #mentalhealth #suicideprevention Loving my new rainbow #kippah !!! #pride Thinking of creating a line of #kippots to promote #mentalhealth and #love #tolerance #acceptance #watchthisspace
*warning-some people May find these images distressing* I’m sorry to have to post this but I’m deeply disturbed by the antisemitic content I’ve found on @twitter @youtube this week. I’ve not even looked into what else is online on different platforms. I’ve reported it of course. But we have to come together and act now to stop this from happening @sajidjavidmp
Holocaust survivor Primo Levi’s powerful words seem sadly very relevant right now #TrumpCamps #TrumpRally #RacistPresident #neveragain
...I got shat on by a seagull 😂😂😂🤢 Well I suppose it’s lucky for some, right?!?
Finally got 5 mins downtime on sunny Worthing seafront after being non-stop for so long and what happens...
Sorry for not gracing your timeline with a photo of my #bestlife today. I know @instagram is meant to be all colour, filters and showing off the best of ourselves. But sometimes there is simply darkness. And that’s #reallife too
We had a great evening at @helstoncommunitycollege in Cornwall talking #mentalhealth Special thanks to the legend that is Stuart Palmer who joined us after completing his epic 600 mile bike ride for our charity @beyondshame.beyondstigma You can show him some love here: x https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/stuart-palmer600
In Helston, Cornwall for #mentalhealth awareness evening tonight raising funds for our new charity @beyondshame.beyondstigma ...come and join us if you’re nearby! x
Privileged to be part of @SHSUnivBrighton @EastSussexCC #mentalhealth conference where we learnt about the fab work @bb_resilience are doing to help support young people with their mental health-led by the amazing Angie who’s talking here with one of their awesome ambassadors
Really enjoyed being a part of this event today. It makes me so angry that @nigel_farage keeps talking about privatising our #nhs If he truly cared about the British public he would work to save it. We need our NHS, and our NHS needs us to fight for it!!!
Looking forward to @happyheadsuk #mentalhealth event on 13th July in Croydon! Tickets are available here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/happy-heads-3-a-mental-health-event-tickets-54618303817
We mustn’t give up on love & peace, even in these dark times where hatred & division seem to dominate #EUElectionsresults #Farage #LePen #Orban #Salvini #loveconquersall #hope #imagineallthepeoplelivinglifeinpeace
In my #fortunecookie tonight #hope

Going offline for a while now. Need to find some peace of mind. I’ll be back. In the words of #amywinehouse ... x
This is f***ing heartbreaking. But why is the govt. choosing to respond by focussing solely on social media and not our struggling youth mental health services to tackle this?!?! Everyone knows our child and adolescent mental health services have been failing too many young people for too long...when are our MPs going to acknowledge this!? https://inews.co.uk/news/health/suicide-rates-teenagers-young-people-social-media/
Awesome first day working with police negotiators in @metpolice_uk at #newscotlandyard Police negotiators don’t get enough credit for the incredible work they do. #mentalhealth #suicideprevention #itsokaytotalk
Sorry for radio silence. I’ve got #ulcerativecolitis again which is a real pain in the arse (pun intended) Hoping these bullets up the bum aka #suppositories kick in soon. #ibd #ibdawareness #stayingpositive
Wishing everyone a peaceful Christmas. And if it’s not so peaceful please #bekindtoyourself today (and every other day of course too) xx
Loving this #christmastree in #vilnius #lithuania My book is being published here and will be out next spring which I’m hugely excited about! Let’s hope it doesn’t end up on next year Christmas tree!! Although that would actually be quite cool 🤷♂️
At the 3rd annual suicide prevention conference in #vilnius #lithuania and left totally inspired by learning about #CAMS for the first time from this man, David A Jobes. CAMS is a therapeutic framework to help patients at risk of suicide. Studies have shown it’s effectiveness. We need to get it to #NHS Professionals!
Brrrrrrrrr this makes the #UK seem tropical right now!!!!! #lithuania #vilnius
Big thank-you to @katiepiper_ for having me as a guest on your podcast. It was a real privilege. I hope you know how much of a hero you are to so many people, including myself. Your courage is truly inspirational Katie xx
It was so great to be a part of #IQMentalHealth event today in Bristol...wonderful to see #mentalhealth trusts coming together to share and learn from each other! This #colloboration is what it’s all about! We’re all #StrongerTogether
Yesterday I had the honour of being part of one of the screenings of new film @evelyn_movie at @claphampicturehouse It is one of the most powerful and courageous films I’ve ever seen. Suicide is still something of a taboo but this film shatters the silence and shame that surrounds it. I know that this film is going to help so many people, particularly those who have been bereaved by suicide. I can’t wait for everyone to see it. Thank-you to all who made #evelynmovie the truly incredible film that it is #weneedtotalkaboutsuicide #ITSOKAYTOTALK
Out of hospital now. Thanks so much for messages of support. They mean a huge deal. In a much better place :) What a difference a week can make! And to top it off our new charity @beyondshame.beyondstigma has a website & film thanks to @thecreativeclinic @workingprogressstudio beyondshamebeyondstigma.co.uk #youngmindsmatter #mentalhealthrevolution #beyondshamebeyondstigma
I’m so sorry to miss last nights talk @Finchleyreform and gutted to drop out of #mentalhealth events planned for next few days but I’ve come back into hospital after having a relapse. I’m going offline for a while now but will be back when I feel ready xx
We spent last night doing a #mentalhealth workshop at @kingsolomonhighschool for parents and it was really great. Lots of open honest conversations. Big thanks to the school for making it happen and also raising funds for our new charity #beyondshamebeyondstigma
Next Saturday my Dad and I will be @waterstones in Watford talking about #mentalhealth and doing a book signing at 3pm. Please join us!

At Euston station on way to Wales and saw this. It makes no sense why millions of pounds are being put into high speed rail line #HS2 when millions of people in this country are suffering due to cuts in services like the #NHS. I know countless people on horrendously long waiting lists for #mentalhealthservices #rantover #screwHS2 #yesNHS
A moving and insightful evening talking #mentalhealth #suicideprevention in the #tech industry. Privileged to be a part of #happypath tonight. Massive thanks to them for raising money for our brand new charity #beyondshamebeyondstigma which is coming soon!
It was a privilege to be part of the lineup for this year’s @mentalwealthfestival “The #Glastonbury of #mentalhealth” My Dad and I spoke together with Dr Erin Turner on how #mentalhealthissues affect not just the individual, but so often families too. We also talked about the need for everyone to receive support and be listened to! Already looking forward to the 2019 @mentalwealthfestival :)
I wrote this piece for @unmindhealth on #worldsuicidepreventionday #wspd https://unmind.com/blog/mental-health/guest-blog-jonny-benjamin-on-talking-about-suicide/
Saw this quote today for the first time and it makes so much sense!!!!! #mentalhealthmatters
Great day in #sherborne talking to hundreds of teachers about #mentalhealth #suicideprevention What really made my day though is this fantastic parents mental health support group which SAST (Sherborne Area Schools Trust) have setup. All schools should have something like this for parents! No family should have to battle mental health issues affecting a loved one alone. #mentalhealthmatters
Climbed #masada at dawn to witness this spectacular sunrise! #israel #feelingblessed #nofilter #itsanewdawnitsanewdayitsanewlifeformeandimfeelinggood
