There was a special guest speaker Jonny Benjamin, who was diagnosed with Schizoaffective disorder at the age of 20.
He gave his account of his mental illness with one amazing real life story. He even had a documentary made, about how he had stood on a bridge in central London ready to take his own life. When a passing stranger stopped and talked to Jonny, saving his life. This had then been made into a docrumentary "Stranger on the Bridge" that was hosted by channel 4.
Wayne who hopes to make a documentary currently volunteers at the Green Canteen.
