My guest today is someone I have been working to get onto the show for two years. He is a hard man to get a sit down with because he is so busy with his purpose in life. Plus he is rubbing elbows with the Royal Family.
Mark Williams is a Keynote Speaker, Author, and International Campaigner. He founded International Fathers Mental Health Day and the #HowAreYouDad Campaign to help ensure that all parents and families are supported throughout the perinatal period.
Mark has spoken on television and radio stations around the world. Working alongside Dr. Jane Hanley, he has published articles on Fathers (Paternal) Mental Health.
In 2012, Mark was awarded “Inspirational Father of the year” and “Local Hero” at the Pride of Britain Awards. On World Mental Health Day in 2016, Mark was invited to meet The Royal Family and in 2019 he was awarded the Point Of Light Award by the Prime Minister.
Mark is also an Ambassador for Mother's for Mother's Charity.
Mark and I really go into the weeds of mental health. We talk about his struggles while his son was being born.
Please check out his TEDx Talk.
This episode means a lot to me because of the aspect of men's mental health. Please share this with men/dads who are in need of understanding that we men need to let other men know when we need help.
