Hi Rob, that's great! Sorry for the delay in getting back to you as you can imagine with working shifts it sometimes takes a little while for a response. If you private message me you email address I'll get some information emailed over to you.

Becoming a champion is the best thing I ever did, seeing a chance in the way my colleagues view mental health and that they are more open about it is so rewarding and I'm sure you will get the same return with the support of all the champions on this forum

Hi Dan, would it be alright if I send you my email also. Hopefully myself and Rob can get together soon and do some work around mental health at Lancs Constabulary. I signed up to the Time to Change scheme just before I was signed off sick from work and more recently Blue Light Champion. I think now is a good time to raise awareness and rid the stigma of mental health in the Constabulary due to the recent suicide of a front line officer.

Hi guys sorry not been in touch not been so busy these past few months and not had chance to get on here. Iím a champion at leigh Fire Station. If you ever want me to pop down to Bolton sometime to introduce myself itís no bother. We could maybe team up and do some joint venture between our services within the local area.
