Naidex, the UK’s premier event for the disability community, proudly announces Roman Kemp, a celebrated host and passionate advocate for mental health awareness, as a keynote speaker at Naidex 2024. Kemp’s presence promises to shed light on the urgent mental health crisis facing the UK, as he shares his personal insights and experiences in a live interview with Able Magazine editor, Tom Jamison.
Statistics from mental health charity, Mind, underscore the significance of Roman Kemp’s intervention, revealing that one in four individuals in the UK will experience a mental health problem annually. Roman, in conversation with the Able Magazine editor, will candidly explore the profound effects of mental health challenges on daily life, and how resources need to be more accessible and inclusive.
Roman Kemp’s impactful film, “Our Silent Emergency,” unveiled the alarming prevalence of depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts among younger demographics. He fearlessly confronted the barriers preventing men, particularly those under 35, from openly discussing their internal struggles.
During his session at Naidex, Roman will delve into his personal journey with mental health and advocate for the vital protection of mental health services. His call to action resonates with Naidex’s commitment to promoting inclusivity and equitable access to resources for all individuals.
“We are honoured to welcome Roman Kemp to Naidex 2024,” expressed Steve Clarke, Managing Director of Naidex. “His dedication to mental health advocacy fits in well with our mission to empower and educate the disability community. Roman’s insights will undoubtedly inspire meaningful conversations and encourage positive change.”
