Mental health advocate Roman Kemp will be this year’s keynote speaker at Naidex.
The celebrated radio host and television personality will shed light on the urgent mental health crisis facing the UK and share his personal insights and experiences with attendees.
Kemp’s impactful film for the BBC, ‘Our Silent Emergency’, unveiled the alarming prevalence of depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts among young people.
And statistics from the charity Mind underscore the significance of the star’s voice, revealing that one in four individuals in the UK will experience a mental health problem annually.
During his session at Naidex, Kemp will delve into his personal journey with mental health and highlight the profound effects of mental health challenges on daily life, and how resources need to be more accessible, particularly within the disability community.
“We are honoured to welcome Roman Kemp to Naidex 2024,” said Steve Clarke, Managing Director of Naidex.
“His dedication to mental health advocacy fits well with our mission to empower and educate the disability community. Roman’s insights will undoubtedly inspire meaningful conversations and encourage positive change.”
