Dr Alex George Visit

As an A&E doctor, who serves as the UK Youth Mental Health Ambassador and advises the government on mental health, Alex has seen first-hand the effects of the pandemic on young people’s mental wellbeing, but he never thought it would affect his own family. In July 2020, Alex’s 19-year-old brother Llŷr – who had been struggling with anxiety during lockdown – took his own life.

Today he spoke openly and honestly, to our students in TY and all the students' who participated in our Darkness into Light walk, about loneliness. Dr Alex raised our Amber Flag from Pieta house to complete his visit.

Thank you to the Headstrong committee and Oide Niamh for organising another wonderful event, raising awareness of mental health in our young people.
