As part of Baxi’s partnership with MENTalk, the boiler manufacturer is helping to spread the word about the group’s podcast series, which features a host of notable guests including TalkSport presenters Mark Saggers and Andy Jacobs, mixed martial artist Alex Reid, and actor and retired Irish heavyweight boxer ‘Big Joe Egan’.
The podcast series was created by MENTalk founders Stephen Blair, Lee Woodgate and Steve Smith, to encourage people to have open and honest conversations about mental health. Each podcast delves into a number of important topics, with the celebrity guests discussing their experiences on a broad range of mental health issues, from anxiety and depression to gambling addiction.
Upcoming guests on the podcast include athletes Sally Gunnel OBE DL and Dame Kelly Holmes DBE, who will be joining the conversation to encourage the installer community to prioritise their wellbeing by connecting with others and discussing mental health issues without stigma.
The series has already received widespread acclaim, as well as endorsements from other celebrity backers including Peter Dale, aka ‘Tubes’ from Sky Sports’ Soccer AM, and ITV football commentator, Clive Tyldesley.
Baxi is now encouraging tradespeople to get involved by subscribing to the podcast on the MENTalk website, as well as joining the online community online (links below).
Anna Clague, residential marketing manager at Baxi, says: “The group’s popular podcast series attracts an impressive array of celebrity guests, many of whom open up about their own experiences dealing with mental health, as well as providing hints and tips on how to manage some of the challenges other people might encounter.
“It’s a fantastic platform to help spread the message and increase awareness around the topic by opening up the conversation and showing that it’s ok to talk about how you feel, so we hope that tradespeople will tune in and get involved.”
Steve Smith, one of the founding members of MENTalk, adds: “We need to get more men talking about their mental health and seeking help where needed, and our podcast was designed with this goal in mind.
“We’ve had fantastic support so far from a range of high-profile guests who have been instrumental in sharing our message by opening up and being honest about their own experiences with mental health.
“With some fantastic content and more special guest appearances in the pipeline, we’re hoping tradespeople will get involved by subscribing to the podcast and joining our online community.”
