The Daily Race

Season #1 Episode #16

Ryan’s brother, Tom, died by suicide 2 and a half years ago.

Ryan runs a business with his close-knit family and had tried to help his brother recover from various addictions. Just 2 months before Ryan’s first son was born, Tom suicided and life has felt like a daily race since. A race to look after the family business, his father who has dementia, his young family and his own mental health.

Ryan got to the point where he realised that he couldn’t carry on being angry. He realised that he needed to try and find a way through the immense feelings. Hear us discuss his journey of grief and how he has used many different techniques to start his healing journey – from counselling to ice baths and yoga.
