Business development is his trade, but it is not what defines Gary Hipworth’s incredible story. An early life riddled with tragedy, his sense of family was torn apart by violence and suicide. Despite this, he has refused to let himself succumb to self pity. Rather, Hipworth focuses his attention on what it is that makes us want to live. His fascination with the human condition, particularly in regard to mental health, has led to a long-running battle with one of the most profit-driven industries in the world today – the pharmaceutical industry.

This is a life-affirming story about self-empowerment and defying the odds.
