Jonny Benjamin and Sarah Hughes (CEO of Mind in Cambridgeshire) will be visiting us at the Clinical School on Friday 9th September, to coincide with World Suicide Prevention Day (10thSeptember 2016) . The event will be introduced by Sarah, followed by a screening of ‘The Stranger on the Bridge’ and then a Q&A session with both Sarah and Jonny. See poster attached. 

Reached by 300 million people worldwide, the #FindMike campaign was the search that inspired the nation. In January 2008 Jonny Benjamin stood on London’s Waterloo Bridge, prepared to take his own life following a recent diagnosis of Schizoaffective disorder. Through the actions of one stranger,  Jonny was persuaded not to jump and since that day he was determined to find and thank the man who saved his life. ‘The Stranger on the Bridge’ is a heart-warming and thought provoking film depicting the journey Jonny travelled in order to find the stranger that saved his life.

Jonny has recently shown his film at Kensington Palace at the request of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in support of their campaign of raising mental health awareness so we are very fortunate that Jonny has agreed to attend and support our Clinical School Wellbeing Programme.

The event will take place on Friday 9th September at 12:00pm in the Cancer Research UK-CI Lecture Theatre on the Cambridge Biomedical campus.

We expect this will be a very popular event so to secure your attendance, please click here to register.
