Earl has been a criminal barrister for 15 years having previously had a career in education, first as a law lecturer then as a manager.  His work as a lawyer has given some insight into how neglected mental health problems can go on to cause lasting widespread problems for individuals and families.   He has benefitted from the insight into some of these issues provided by his partner, who as a psychologist, works with families with significant wellbeing issues.  He is pleased to see the recent raised awareness of suicide and associated mental illness. He hopes to support SOS in its crucial commitment to promoting this important conversation.
