    Nick from MyndFit- Agoraphobic to mental health practitioner

    Nick from MyndFit- Agoraphobic to mental health practitioner

    Nick's story...

    "Where to begin?! I guess the best place to start would be to explain a bit about where I've come from.
    I am what's considered to be a "lived experience" practitioner, meaning instead of taking the conventional scholastic route to becoming a psychotherapist, I went to the "school of life" and my initial teachers were my mistakes.
    I was medically discharged from the Armoured Corp in the Australian Army in 2002 with a permanent knee injury along with anxiety and depression. I had been training hard because East Timor was just kicking off and as a recon soldier based in Darwin, we were going to be first cabs off the rank to go and calm things down a bit.
    That's when my knee blew out, and it all started spiralling downhill from there. The operation I had was not successful, meaning the rehabilitation I did had no real effect. I was on crutches and in a knee brace for 3 months, then on restricted duties until I discharged. "

    In this podcast we only touched briefly on his time in the army and the trauma around his childhood.

    This podcast was all about how as Nick can help people who have mental health issues or mental illness.
    In the chat there is a huge amount of information which you can take away and put in to practice.
    We chatted about the most effective way to help the kids of today.

    Jack talks about his own mental health and saving a mates life.

    Jack talks about his own mental health and saving a mates life.

    Jacks story isn't what people would usually talk about but these are the conversations we need to aim to have with our mates week to week to help each other.

    Jacks first experience with mental illness was when he got a goodbye message from a friend at 18 years of age who was about take his own life. Jack and mates just ran trying to find their friend.
    Jack found his good friend and held him and told him he loved him.
    Along with other friends- they saved their friend from taking his own life.

    Jack hasn't suffered a mental illness but is a human who has experienced the range of emotions which include anxiety and depression.
    Jack opens up on things he never has before.
    Thoughts of driving his car off the road and reckless gambling.

    Jack has been touched by a friend who died by suicide and this is a huge driving factor for him to speak up, raise awareness and funds for mental health charities.

    In 2021 Jack ran 100km with friend Paul Pratt to raise over $10,000 for MindfullAus

    Madi- Huntingtons disease, the loss of her mum and mental health.

    Madi- Huntingtons disease, the loss of her mum and mental health.

    At between 1:00am and 2:00am Madi got the call from her Nanna to say that her mum has passed away at age 47 after an extensive battle with Huntington's disease.
    Madi was a 19 year old who had spent much of her teenage years watching her mums physical and mental health deteriorate. While most teenagers were just being teenagers Madi was forced to grow up really quickly taking on the role of carer for some of those teenage years.

    Huntington's is a cruel degenerative disease which has no cure and only management plans.

    As a child of someone who has Huntington's you're a 50/50 chance to get it.
    In this podcast we chat about:

    •the Huntington's disease
    •The symptoms
    •The mental toll
    •Being forced to grow up
    •Grief and loss
    •Whether Madi had the geneThis was a real and raw conversation about the death of a loved one.

    In Maddi's words "Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share with you, my story. I have always hoped that my past experiences can help someone else's future. I would love to speak and normalise so many common occurrences with grief and mental health. Something that I so badly needed to hear when I was experiencing it myself."

    Absolutely inspirational to share this and I know this will help nay in the future.
