Staff Mental Health Champions - Jorge Ojeda Gomez

Jorge Ojeda Gomez, Senior Research Lab Technician, Biomedical Sciences Building

"I am passionate about changing mental health perceptions in society. Through experiences of my own and others I have been confronted with my own prejudices, forcing me on a cathartic journey and recognising in myself the stigma within. Therefore I am prepared to battle mental illness discrimination, to combat the stigma and to contribute towards building a society where we can talk openly about how to improve mental health and destigmatize mental illness. Time to change!"
