Catching up with MANUP?

In May 2022, Peter did an interview with Dan Somers, founder of a men's mental health charity called MANUP?. Today, we caught up with Dan again - here's the interview:

I really love the key takeaway section he has put together:

แด‹แด‡ส แด›แด€แด‹แด‡แด€แดกแด€ส๊œฑ:

๐—Ÿ๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐——๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฎ: Peter describes his memory as a "pencil drawing with no colour" and how meaningful conversations can "fill in the colours."

๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—™๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ด๐—ผ๐˜๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—–๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ด๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€: Peter's wife, like many caregivers, is often overlooked. Let's remember the emotional toll on family members.

๐— ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฎ๐—น ๐—›๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜๐—ต ๐— ๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€:Daniel emphasises that mental health conditions, including dementia, affect everyone around the individual, not just the person diagnosed.

Poetry for the Soul Peter and Deb have released a poetry book, "Walk with me: musings through the dementia fog," capturing Peter's raw emotions and thoughts.

Physical Meets Mental: Peter's next challenge? Cycling 100 miles in a day to promote physical and mental well-being.

Education is Key: Both Daniel and Peter stress the need for public awareness and education about dementia and mental health.

Wisdom from Peter: "You only die once; you live every day." Let's make each day count.

Let's break the stigma and open up the conversation about dementia and mental health. Share this video to spread awareness and education.

Dan: you do a wonderful job of raising awareness around men's mental health!
