John Dennis - Founder and Chairman
John Dennis is the founder and driving force behind dare2express.
Stemming from his own personal mental health problems, John decided it was time to help others. His depression and PTSD stems back from his fathers suicide when he was just 17 years old.
"Depression is something I have suffered with all of my life, with 90% of it unknown to anyone" he says. There are multiple reasons behind his choice to hide it, mostly due to stigma and the perception surrounding it.
With that in mind, John remains relentless in his pursuit to raise awareness of depression since 2013. As a result, he has appeared on the BBC in both radio and television, spoken at keynote events, been a speaker at a TEDx event and been published in many newspaper articles globally; all to raise awareness for this hidden killer.
