Louis from Headstrong on the stage with Alastair Campbell

Headstrong Podcast with Alastair Campbell

We were thrilled to participate in a live Headstrong podcast this month, featuring special guest Alastair Campbell, where he took to the stage and addressed his own journey battling mental health.

Over 160 attendees joined Headstrong for this inspiring conversation, where Louis from Headstrong delved deep into Alastair’s relationship with alcohol, his journey with mental health, and his coping mechanisms, including the unwavering support from his wife. Being set during Mental Health Awareness Week, this discussion couldn’t have been more timely.

This charity event was in support of both the Charlie Watkins Foundation and the Nick Kilhams Foundation. A big thank you to everyone that attended the evening, and a huge thank you to Alastair for his candid and engaging conversation.
