Before his 21st, at an age when most people are worried about little more than partying, Alex Staniforth had already planned 2 attempts at Everest and sadly seen both end in tragedy.

These early setbacks obviously took a toll, but over the last few years, Alex has found new challenges and channeled his own experiences of overcoming mental health problems into creating Mind over Mountains, a charity offering support to those who find themselves tackling the same issues.

We chatted with Alex about facing an avalanche on the world’s highest peak, visiting every high point in every county of the UK and about managing mental health.

Head over to Mind over Mountains to learn more about how Alex is helping to create life-changing outdoor experiences to help restore mental health.
