Zac was 29 years old and working as a Social Work Assistant when he took his own life whilst recovering from a period of mental ill health in Worcester. He had been affected by poor mental health for many years and struggled to cope with his illness. Zac was loved by many but, unfortunately, he wasn’t always able to love himself or give himself credit for his many achievements.
Behind the Smile is a charity founded by the parents of Zac. We believe that everyone has the right to a good standard of mental health and, where they do not, they should have access to timely and appropriate support services.
