Alastair joined forces with Danny Gray, founder of male make-up brand War Paint for Men to revolutionise mental health support.
The writer features on the website Just Ask A Question, which sees him answer questions about his battle with depression in an interactive experience.
The platform also offers advice and experience from world-leading health professionals and other well-known figures who have suffered from mental illness.
Speaking about opening up for the website, Alastair said he answered over 150 questions about his depression, adding: “It feels like you’re having a proper conversation but your conscious mind knows who I am.”
