The Bentley Man Story

My name is Mike, and I began The Bentley Man to offer others like myself, in the UK, the opportunity to speak to someone who understands them. It isn’t easy for men and women to ask for mental health help, nor is finding someone willing to speak about it openly with you. I know this from my own struggle. But I managed to overcome my demons and begin Living my dream. I want to create a space for individuals struggling to talk and share their issues 

What you don't see in this photo, apart from my flash Bentley is the story of how I got here today. I tell my story to help others at events throughout the UK with amazing results.
And now i am Living the dream,When I might not of been here today,Time to Talk Life is worth living

How it All Beganw

In 2009 l was in a very dark place and time in my life. Everyone that was important to me had sadly passed away. Due to what was happening in my head, I walked out on what was a good marriage. No one would listen to me when I said there was something wrong with me. Not even my wife. I knew there was something wrong with me, and so I got medication, but it didn’t help. 

I just needed someone to talk to, but no one was there for me.This is when I realised, I was meant to still be here. I had to start again and rebuild my life. It took 10 years of hard work, but I got there. Now I feel like my life is complete, and I have been married for 6 wonderful years!.All I can say is, it’s good to talk.If you find someone whom you can talk to, anyone, then you will realise that life is worth living. You don’t realise how many other people are going through the same thing as you until you talk.So now here I am living the dream. But I might not have been here.


It’s Good to Talk

Amazing work!

Michael Turlin glad you didn't succeed at your attempts, and found peace. I often say by telling our story, it give others the courage to tell theirs. And begins our journey to peace and healing. Would love to know what steps you took to heal: talking (therapeutic, etc?) and what else?

Unfortunately so many need help. I lost a special friend just before Christmas last year with 2 very young daughters he would never have left.

Thanks for sharing your story Michael, definitely an inspiration!

So glad you overcame the darkness!!

Inspiring story Micheal - thanks for sharing

Last week I went on an aftercare site visit to check on one of my new Site Managers, drop in some biscuits etc. All pretty standard. We ended up having a great chat about the work *My Mental Health* Mike Turlin4 does outside of the day job in construction.

He is very passionate about mental health, so much so he invests a great deal of his own time and money into his mental health awareness project. Even without the madness that is 2020 these issues have been very real for many of us long before this year and I was very taken aback by Mikes passion for this project.

Its OK not to be OK, there are people out there who care who don't even know you. You are not alone. Please check out Mikes website for details on his project and where you can find him at various events across the UK. #mentalhealth #construction #mentalhealthawareness #health #self help
