Speaker Biography

Viv Askeland

Viv is Pathway's longest serving Expert by Experience, ‘the Queen’. Norwegian born Viv is different, she told us how when others around her were getting drunk or taking drugs when sleeping rough, she managed to get sober, get straight and drag herself out of it.

A relationship breakdown and mental health was the start of her fall. In last year's programme she said she was nearing the end of her involvement with Pathway, but we couldn't let the Queen abdicate and like me this is her third conference. We decided that we would let Viv tell you about her journey on the main stage – so watch out for her.
