    Sadness and Depression with Clinical and Forensic Psychologist Shona Innes

    What are the signs that we should look out for?

    If someone is struggling to talk to someone close to them what advice can you give for them to open up, so they’re not keeping it all inside?

    What can parents do to help if they suspect that their child is depressed?

    Take a listen to this interview and the way Shona brilliantly advises us on what can be done.

    Kindness - How can we make a difference in the world?

    Kindness - How can we make a difference in the world?

    At the end of every episode we like to ask our guests “If you could change one things in the world what would it be and why?'“ so we thought it would be fitting to finish season one with an episode on Kindness.

    Who better to chat to than ‘The Pad Lady,’ Rochelle from Share the Dignity.

    Rochelle started Share the Dignity in Brisbane when she read an article on Mia Freedman's page early in 2015 about homeless women and the difficulties they face when getting their period. Rochelle was shocked that these women needed to clean themselves in public toilets and use paper towels to create a makeshift sanitary pad.

    Unable to be a bystander, knowing that no woman should suffer the indignity of choosing between eating or buying sanitary products. Rochelle decided to do something about it, and the first collection had the local community, friends, family, and local businesses come together collecting over 500 pads and tampons.

    Rochelle’s initiative was such a success and she was thrilled that women would benefit from the collection by getting them out to some local great Brisbane charities to distribute.

    It wasn’t long afterwards that Share the Dignity was contacted by a few domestic violence shelters, asking if they had any more sanitary items, sadly they had to say no.  As a result, Rochelle has been determined never to have to say no again!

    “The Standard you walk past is the standard you accept.” Rochelle Courtenay, Founder Share the Dignity

    PLEASE NOTE: This interview was meant to be conducted face-to-face however after a last minute change (broken down car!) we decided to do it remotely. The audio quality is therefore a little low, but it's still a great listen!
