Meet the guys


Davey, a snowboarding, shirt lifting, media worker in his 30s, has spent the last eight years trying to manage his diagnosis of depression and (eventually) anxiety. With ups and many downs along the way, his need to name, shame and share his demons led him to start this podcast to encourage men to talk about their mental health.


Damian is a mental health nurse from Derry in Ireland. He has a longstanding diagnoses of depression and anxiety; and as of December 2016- Tourette Syndrome and OCD. A familiar face, Damian has been on TV shows talking about his mental illness and Tourettes including First Dates on Channel 4.

What People Are Saying

Davey and Damian smash into a topic many tiptoe around. They tackle the subject with humour, bonhomie and unashamed honesty, whilst never downplaying how serious the impact of mental illness can be on someone’s life. A great listen.

For too long, men have kept quiet about mental health preferring to bottle up their issues rather than talk about them. What Davey and Damian do is create a safe space to put our problems under a microscope, and they do so with good humour, quick wit and without taking themselves too seriously. We could all learn something from them.

See Me, Scotland

MenTalkHealth came into the National Theatre to speak as part of Mental Health Awareness Week and they shared their personal experiences both in and out of work in a really engaging, honest and insightful way. It was brilliant to hear men talking so openly about mental health and they’ve inspired several of our male employees to open up and talk about their own mental health which has been brilliant.
