Danny Rahim is an Actor and Mental Health Ambassador. Over the past decade he has starred in a number of TV shows including EastEnders, DCI Banks, Primeval, Vera and Citizen Khan. 

When Danny was fourteen his mother was involved in a near fatal car accident and subsequently diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Throughout his teenage years he became a young carer for his mother and years later, after a series of unfortunate events, Danny himself had a mental breakdown. This sparked his curiosity into the subject and his desire to turn his personal experience into something positive that could help and enable others.


Danny graduated from the Manchester School of Theatre with his good friend and fellow Mental Health Campaigner Jonny Benjamin MBE. Jonny and Danny have spent the last four years working with schools, universities and companies to help reduce the stigma that so often surrounds our Mental Health. 

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