Staff Mental Health Champion - Jez Stein

Jez Stein, Library Support Supervisor, Arts and Social Sciences Library

"Champion feels like a strange word to represent me when my own struggle with poor mental health has often been an experience of failure, in communication and connection with others, and the isolation that has brought. Over time I've been lucky enough to have met individuals who shared their feelings with me in direct and open communication. Some of these conversations have changed and saved my life. If you would like to talk to me I hope I can offer that same honesty and trust that has so enriched my own life. If you are struggling now, be patient with yourself."
