About Thomas Dunning

My name is Thomas Dunning. I am a motivation speaker located in the east midlands and I am a mental health advocate to prevent anyone going down the same path I did and how many are unfortunate to recover from. I have had the huge honour to give a TED talk on mental health and my journey and from this, it has given me the passion to spread my message.

I suffer with PTSD, Borderline Personality Disorder and Social Anxiety Disorder but I don't let these define me, I define them. I don't let my demons pull me down and I am passionate to help motivate and inspire others to do the same. I run the website to help motivate and inspire those who may also be suffering to take up running as a means to help with their own mental health issues.

In the UK there is 1 in 4 people at any one time suffering with a mental health problem, that means there is always 3 others who can help change a life.
