About Andy Price
Andy Price’s journey is both compelling and enlightening, transitioning from a soldier and private military contractor to a mental health advocate. His service in the Middle East and North Africa for over a decade came to a pivotal end in 2017 following a diagnosis of Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD), which effectively ended his military career.
Confronted with years of self-medication, self-harm, and constant suicidal thoughts, Andy has emerged as a powerful voice for mental health, especially within the veteran community. At a time when the demand for mental health support is at an all-time high and the number of individuals taking their own lives continues to increase, Andy advocates for positive mental health and aims to break the silence on this often-taboo subject.
As a Mental Health Speaker, Andy shares his journey candidly—ranging from his early years involving petty crime and drug use to his military career, where he witnessed the sheer brutalities of war. This ultimately led him to the private military sector, culminating in his battle with mental health. His presentations offer a raw, sometimes humorous, look into the life of someone whose career was built around conflict, its aftermath, and the reality of living with a life-changing mental health condition. Andy’s story is not just his own but serves as a beacon of hope and understanding for many facing similar struggles.
