Dan Keeley

Dan Keeley is one of the UK’s most collaborative and committed thought-leaders, mental health activists and keynote speakers, on a mission to bring the
UK together to talk about what really matters most. In 2017, after a 5 year battle with bipolar disorder and coming close to taking his own life, Dan ran 1,250 miles from the Colosseum in Rome back to the London Eye (solo, and self-supported) to share his story on a national scale - raising over £15,000 for the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) and empowering thousands of others to speak up when they’re suffering.

Dan is also the Founder & Mission Director of #AREWEOKUK, the social enterprise on a mission to empower the UK to speak up when we’re suffering so that together we can show future generations how it’s done.
