Pembrokeshire widow receives Pride of Britain award

Emma Picton Jones, founder of the DJP Foundation joined many selfless others at London’s Pride of Britain Awards to receive a Special Recognition award for her work in mental health.

Emma was left widowed after her husband Dan took his own life as a result of severe depression and anxiety.

Fearing others in rural communities (specifically within agriculture) weren’t receiving the support they needed, Emma founded the DJP Foundation, providing a #sharetheload 24 hour support line and a funded counselling service for residents in Pembrokeshire.

Following great success in raising awareness and funds, the team are now recruiting paid counsellors across West Wales who can support their mission.
