Colonel Andy Reid MBE
In October 2009, Colonel Andy Reid lost both his legs and right arm after stepping on an IED while on patrol in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. His injuries were so bad that it was thought he would not survive; however, he astounded people with recovery, returning home after just two weeks in the hospital.
Serving in the British Armed Forces was a childhood dream for Andy, who continues to reflect positively on his time in the army and the fantastic opportunities and experiences it allowed him to experience. A testament to his attitude in overcoming adversity, he doesn’t let the severity of his injuries stop him from living his life with a positive mindset
Danny a former international rugby league player. During a training accident he sustained a serious spine injury that forced him into retirement. Danny suffered severe depression and despair with frequent thoughts of taking his own life. He felt like he was a burden to his family and thought that his wife and children would be better off without him. Fortunately, with the help of his family, counselling and clinical support, he was able to recover.
Phil an Australian ex Super League player with over 500 appearances in the top grade. After coming to the end of his playing career he embarked on a successful coaching career winning numerous trophies.
Then, through losing his job in management, he felt like a failure and suffered badly with depression on top of losing a family member to mental health problems, his issues got worse, and he fought his way through this with talking and goal setting as his coping mechanisms.
