Magnus Group CEO Olly Magnus has been made a patron of the local mental health charity Suffolk Mind.

Olly has been open about his own mental health challenges in the period leading up to taking over the company.

And he hit the news in early 2021 with his viral ‘This Man’ social media post, highlighting the various pressures, struggles and worries he has experienced over the past 25 years.

Olly, who joins Lord Dennis Stevenson as a Suffolk Mind patron, has since gone on to be named as one of Archant’s top 100 influential people in Suffolk, as well as winning Director of the Year at the Suffolk Business Awards.

Following the announcement, Olly said: “I’m delighted to be named as patron for Suffolk Mind and to help the charity’s mission of being open and transparent when it comes to mental health.

“Having faced my own mental health battles, I know first-hand how important Suffolk Mind’s services and training are to those in Suffolk and across the UK.

“I’m excited to help in the charity’s mission to make Suffolk the best place in the world for talking about and taking care of mental health.”

Suffolk Mind works throughout Suffolk delivering services and mental health training to people across the mental health continuum.

Chief Executive of Suffolk Mind, Jon Neal, was named alongside Olly in Archant’s top 100 influential people in Suffolk.

Jon said: “Olly’s openness around his personal mental health challenges, as well as his charitable work and Suffolk business connections, meant we felt that he would be a great fit for Suffolk Mind.”

Suffolk Mind’s Chair of Trustees, Ian White of Beckett Investment Management Group, said: “We need mental health advocates like Olly to help support our vital work and we’re delighted to see him join us as a patron.”
