Clarke & Carrie Carlisle

Clarke & Carrie Carlisle

On 22 December 2014, Clarke was hit by a lorry on the A64 near York, and subsequently airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary having suffered cuts, bruises, internal bleeding, and many broken bones.

It has became one of the widest publicised suicide attempts of recent years, hitting the headlines across the UK.

It didn’t end there, long running mental health issues caused his first marriage to fail and a second attempt to take his own life followed in September 2017, he was reported missing, having last been seen earlier that day in Manchester city centre, though thankfully found safe in Liverpool.

And now, along with wife Carrie they discuss in a disarmingly open way both Clarke’s own struggles with mental health and talk about how this affects us all and those around us providing audiences with inspiring and actionable outcomes.

They have been phenomenally successful at engaging with colleagues in all types or commercial and organisations over the past decade including many FTSE 100 companies.
