Alex Staniforth is no stranger to overcoming adversity.

By the age of 25, he had already attempted to summit Mount Everest twice and survived two days trapped in the 2015 Nepal earthquake. The adventurer and mental health advocate, Alex authored 2 books and founded the mental health charity ”Mind Over Mountains” – after overcoming his own crippling anxiety from bullying and a stammer which lead to poor mental health and an eating disorder.
