Danny Rahim is an Actor and Mental Health Ambassador.  

 

Over the past decade Danny has starred in a number of TV shows including EastEnders, DCI Banks, Primeval, Vera and Citizen Khan - alongside working with schools, universities and businesses to help reduce the stigma that so often surrounds the subject of mental health. 

When Danny was thirteen, his mother was involved in a near-fatal car accident where she lost her unborn child. She was subsequently diagnosed with bipolar disorder and continues to work with her challenges today. Throughout his teenage years, Danny became a young carer for his mother and two sisters and after a series of unfortunate events, Danny himself had a breakdown. This sparked his curiosity into the subject of mental health and a desire to turn his personal experience into something positive that could help and enable others. 

 

In 2017 Danny decided to take some time off from acting and joined a fast-paced sales environment in London. He quickly progressed up the organisation, but soon realised he was losing sight of his work-life balance and his mental health was deteriorating. This was a useful reminder of the importance and value of looking after our own well-being.  

 

Danny talks openly about his own experience, shares his insight and enables participants to create positive change during times of adversity and beyond.
