This session will take place on Thursday 2 February, Time to Talk Day. This annual event is about us all being able to talk openly about mental health and feel empowered to seek help when we need it.
In July 2018 Sajid lost his brother, Tariq, to suicide. In 2021 more than 5,000 people took their own lives in the UK; three-quarters of them were men. Sajid believes a stigma around mental health prevents men from seeking help sooner.
