Hafal’s Promise Ambassador Dafydd James talks about his experience of mental health problems at SBBC lunch

On Thursday 17th October, Swansea Bay Business Club hosted a lunch event with Hafal’s Promise Ambassador Dafydd James at Parc Y Scarlets in Llanelli.

At the lunch, Dafydd – a Wales and British & Irish Lions rugby star – spoke in depth about his experiences of mental ill health as well as his fantastic achievements during a stellar professional rugby career.

Dafydd highlighted the role that employers and workmates can have in supporting colleagues with mental health issues, and in ensuring that those with such issues are treated fairly.

The lunch was a great opportunity for employers to network with other members of the business community from across the Swansea Bay City region while also discussing the increasingly important topic of mental health in the workplace.

Dafydd had some outstanding feedback after his inspiring words at the event – great to see our very own Ambassador breaking down the stigma of mental illness and promoting better support in the workplace!
