David ‘Scotty’ Darroch

Northern Ireland

Scotty Darroch has been a civil servant for the last seven years working in MT Control in Aldergrove flying station as a MT supervisor and Road Safety advisor. Before that he served as a corporal and training instructor for 10 years in the Army’s Royal Logistic Corps. It took 18 years after leaving the Army for Scotty to be diagnosed with depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); something which has had a devastating impact on the lives of himself and his family.

Having now found that sports and having an active lifestyle can play a massive and positive role on his mental health, he has a new found belief that he can start to focus positively on the future.
