Just Ask book cover


It was a pleasure to meet a number of you at the event on 13th May as part of Mental Health Awareness Week. I hope that you found my presentation helpful and motivating. As promised, here are a few additional resources to support your journey going forward.

If you missed it, or just want a refresher, here’s the full video for you.

Here is a summary of your responses to the questions I posed during the presentation.

You can test your current ability to ask for help using the ‘Support Scorecard’ here. The test should take less than five minutes and will give you some insights into where you can change your current approach to sharing with others.

The tips book on mastermind groups I mentioned can be downloaded here –  Mastermind Groups – Lopata.

I also promised to share some of my resources around mentoring. You can see some videos about mentoring on my YouTube channel here. 

We are supporting the mental health charity My Black Dog.
