    How should we be caring for the children?

    When a parent suffers from mental illness it is rare for anyone – parent, teacher, or even social worker – to know how to discuss the illness with the child. So what happens?

    Dr Pamela Jenkins is Host of the podcast, My Family, Mental Illness… and Me, run by the charity Our Time, which gives children of parents with mental illness the support they need in communities and in schools. She chats with Yvette about the charity, the podcast and the change that needs to happen...

Experience centered and comforting

I love this podcast! I listen to it from Australia, which has a similar health system so find its content very informative and relatable. The interviews explore mental health from the perspective of those who have experienced various mental health characteristics and diagnoses - a vital contribution to mental health conversation.
