#2 Jonny Benjamin: The Stranger on The Bridge: Men, Music and Mental Health

Jonny Benjamin began having mental health problems at the age of 10 when he started experiencing auditory hallucination.

He later developed depression at 16 and was eventually diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, a combination of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, in his early 20s.

Jonny’s book, The Stranger on The Bridge, tells the story of how he was saved from jumping off a bridge in London in 2008.

This is an awe-inspiring conversation with a man who has had to struggle with a condition that has haunted him most of his life but has used that to become one of the most magnificent speakers and mental health advocates in the country.
