“It’s okay to be not okay, it really is!” Franky has struggled with his mental health in the past and is an avid supporter of campaigns such as Movember to encourage people to talk about mental health issues and seek support. In particular, Franky is passionate about breaking the stigma around men’s mental health, following horrific statistics that highlight one man around the world loses his life to suicide every single minute of every day. The cause is extremely close to Franky’s heart and we are sure that hearing his story will help us all do a little bit more to reduce the number men taking their own lives.

“I really enjoyed your presentation. I was particularly impressed with the emphasis on the science behind the way the body and mind react to stress and its tendency to propagate it rather than control it. Your calm and clear delivery was also very impressive”
