This week on Inspired Edinburgh we have Marvin Reid.

Marvin is a Senior Occupational Therapist and Founder of Chill Winston UK, an organisation that works with boys and men to give them the tools to become more emotionally resilient.

He’s a speaker, a vlogger, a podcaster and a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner.

This is a deep and profound conversation about Marvin’s ongoing self discovery and evolution, the genesis of Chill Winston and his mission to combat male suicide.
