Life is about being the best that you can be: Andrew shares his journey of self-acceptance and self-actualization
As part of the #BeYourself campaign we have highlighted various members of the LGBT community who have shared their inspiring stories. Andrew shares his coming out story below - not only is an Advocate for LGBT issue’s but he is hugely passionate about mental health.
I think it's extremely important for members of the LGBT community to maintain positive mental health, without such, life is a very dark tunnel with little or no end in sight. For a second year running, I've organised a Darkness Into Light 5km walk/run at Fairyhouse Racecourse for Pieta House. It's all part of efforts to foster positive mental health nationwide and ensure that if people have a problem. They speak up and out and get the help and support that they need; just last year we raised €30,000.
