Do you ever feel you're a fraud and about to be found out?
Do you feel an expectation to keep going and to be strong?
Do you ever think what it would be like to just... 'STOP'?


You're not alone. Mental ill health impacts one in four people every year, and professionals in high-pressure jobs are especially vulnerable.

Life is a Four-Letter Word is a mental health survival guide for professionals, from a high-flying Big 4 accountant who's struggled with depression, anxiety, stress and suicidal thoughts and learned a lot along the way.

Andy now advocates positive action around mental health, working closely with business leaders across the UK to help them build mentally healthy cultures. He is a renowned speaker and writer on mental health, entrepreneurship and finance.

Andy Salkeld is a Big Four trained Chartered Accountant. He specialised in the complex field of corporate finance before moving into the private sector to focus on business intelligence and analytics. He now brings his professional expertise to the technology and start-up scene, helping new business to employ best practice as they grow. He is an investor and Director at a newly founded technology company with the ambitious goal of 'helping the high street fight back against online' whilst also 'building location-centric communities'. Andy has also knowingly lived with depression for most of his life. Struggling with his work in his 30s, distant from his family and feeling unable to connect with anyone, he was just at his lowest point when his wife left him. He came within moments of taking his own life. He now advocates positive action around mental health, giving his signature 'Breaking the Stigma' talk at a wide range of market-leading international organisations. He works closely with business leaders across the UK, delivering talks, workshops and coaching across their offices as they strive to build mentally healthy cultures.
