Paul Kelly – England

Ambassador

Back to People

Paul’s young parents divorced before he started primary school, resulting in him and his mother going to live with his loving grandparents.

From starting primary school, Paul was always a keen sportsman, excelling at swimming, football, chess and cricket, and after establishing himself as a regular in the Nottinghamshire (UK) cricket set-up, his grandmother decided to give him the opportunity to go to a private school to play his beloved sport, something he continued in Australia.

On his return to England, Paul was attacked after a night out and hospitalised, suffering temporary blindness, a double fractured skull and memory loss. After ten days in a coma, he awoke and started to try and rebuild his life; however, he encountered severe depression, suicidal thoughts, paranoia, and heavy drinking binges.

With the help of family & friends, step-by-step, Paul began the road to recovery and happiness – a 25-year roller-coaster journey – that has taught him vital lessons…particularly using stress to achieve success.
