In June 2021, I suffered what I can only describe as a complete mental breakdown. It was the most frightening experience of my life and one which went on for around six months before I finally received the treatment I needed. Sadly, I had to go to hell and back before I was eventually sectioned and spent around a month on a psychiatric ward.
Since then, I have been on a journey of recovery and have received amazing support and treatment from a variety of statutory and voluntary agencies.
In September 2022, I spent two weeks at Auchterarder Police Treatment Centre on their psychological wellbeing course. This played such a huge part in my recovery that whilst I was there, I decided that I wanted to do something to show my gratitude and support for the amazing work they do there.
Triathlons are one of my many loves, and so I have decided to challenge my mind and body to complete Ripon Olympic Triathlon.
