The PowerPoint is about Jonny Benjamin (MBE), a British mental health campaigner, who launched a social media campaign called 'Find Mike' to search for the stranger who talked him out of taking his own life in 2008. The purpose of the campaign was to raise awareness of suicide and mental illness. It went viral and received global media attention. Within just two weeks Jonny found the stranger he was looking for, Neil Laybourn.
