Alex Staniforth: Mental Health and Everest Adventures
This week’s guest, Alex Staniforth, is an author, adventurer, overcomer of personal adversity, endurance athlete, fundraiser, Everest attempter and Director of the soon-to-be charity Mind Over Mountains.
I really enjoyed our conversation as we discuss everything from overcoming the noise of childhood bullies, his own struggles with negotiating his physical and mental health, to the journeys to not one but two Everest attempts... as well as why he's so passionate about getting people into nature.
Find out more about Alex on his hugely comprehensive website and via his new project, Mind Over Mountains. They've also got some great interviews on there with some incredible adventurers I'd really recommend watching!
