On 14 January 2008 Jonny Benjamin went to Waterloo Bridge to take his own life. A stranger, ‘Mike’, stopped him that day and changed his life forever. Six years later, in conjunction with Postcard Productions, we launched a campaign to find the stranger on the bridge who came to his aid
The campaign spread far and wide and two weeks later Jonny was able to say thank you to the man that gave him hope. As ambassadors of Rethink Mental Illness Jonny and Neil (AKA ‘Mike’) are working hard to raise awareness of mental illness and get people talking about the subject.
