LHF's objective is to ensure that all medical and emergency services personnel have access to the best mental health support network available.
Our carers need caring for too.
Adam started his career as a doctor which he has honestly and hilariously documented in his best selling and award winning book "This Is Going To Hurt".
The book is based upon his diaries as a junior doctor and offers a rare and revealing insight into life on the front line as a young medical professional. Since publication the book has sold over 800,000 copies, been translated into 25 languages and has been a Sunday Times top 10 bestseller for over 9 months, demonstrating the reach and respect of the author and the relevance of the subject matter.
Since leaving the medical profession Adam has turned his hand to writing and performing stand up comedy. Popular demand to see Adam deliver his work has led to extra dates being added to his current tour, with some dates still available (but that won't be for long). Another accolade that demonstrates the appetite for Adam's unique voice and message is the good news that his book has now been commissioned by the BBC to be adapted into an eight part comedy drama.
For us it is key that his direct medical experience and passion for supporting others within the profession resonates with our mission of ensuring all emergency services personnel have access to the mental health network they need and deserve.
Adam details his reasons for supporting The Laura Hyde Foundation below:
"I am honoured and absolutely humbled to have been asked to become a patron of the Laura Hyde Foundation. I passionately believe that we need to do so much more to look after the mental wellbeing of our healthcare professionals. This is now more important than ever, with the NHS under unparalleled strain, and its staff under greater pressures than ever. Stories like Laura's are unbearably tragic and far too frequent - it's time to do more to care for the carers"
It’s okay to not be perfect. It’s okay to make mistakes. It’s okay to do something that you hadn’t done, because if we don’t do those things, we never grow.”
