determined to make lasting change.
LEWIS ALEXANDER BAXTER
Founder AND CEO
Lewis founded The Blurred Line Group in 2018. After suffering from major depression and considering suicide in 2016, Lewis has seen first-hand the challenges facing communities across the UK: limited mental health services available, the lack of clarity of where to access support and long waiting lists for help. In the last 2-years, with experience on the Board of mental health charities, Lewis is aware of the real struggles that small, local charities and community projects have in accessing funding. Lewis is a law student at Durham University, and an experienced public speaker, delivering engaging talks and workshops at businesses across the UK. He recently completed a TEDx talk on the topic of mental health.
“We may have begun our journey with a small event in Lancashire, but The Blurred Line Group aspires to become a leading organisation supporting mental health charities, projects and people across the UK.”
