I am joined this week by one of the nation’s most popular TV doctors and the Government's newly appointed Youth Mental Health Ambassador, Dr. Alex George. Alex won the heart of millions in the 2018 series of Love Island and is about to release a debut book called Live Well Every Day.
2020 was an extremely tough year for Dr Alex, he was working on the front line as an A&E doctor and experienced a very tragic loss when his younger brother took his own life in the midst of the pandemic. However, he remains incredibly positive and is a huge inspiration to thousands of people around the world.
Over the past year, he has started to lobby the government about mental health in schools and is on a mission to make health and medicine more accessible to everyone.
In this episode, Dr Alex reflects on the events of the last year and speaks so passionately about his new role as Youth Mental Health Ambassador. He discusses the highs and lows of overnight fame and describes how he found his purpose again after Love Island.
We talk about how the pandemic has made society more health conscious and the reasons for writing his book, Live Well Every Day which addresses the health challenges of today's world such as anxiety, mental health, sexual health and so much more.
