    Join myself and Louise Troen on this episode of Dancing In The Grey. Not only is Louise my rock and best friend but she is also vice president of international marketing at the leading mental health and mindfulness app, HeadSpace. 

    Together we discuss the challenging and beautiful grey spaces in Louise’s life. Louise talks through her positive coping strategies such as running and practicing gratitude whilst mentioning how she made spirituality more practical and manageable, despite being skeptical. 
    Key points:
    The limiting ways that exist to articulate our mental health


    Resources to help you identify unclear emotions such as The Feelings Wheel


    The difficulty in pairing professional life with private life emotions and the notion that these can coexist

    JENNIFER MARSHALL: FINDING HOPE THROUGH THE STORIES OF OTHERS

    JENNIFER MARSHALL: FINDING HOPE THROUGH THE STORIES OF OTHERS

    Join me on the fourth episode of Dancing In The Grey with special guest Jennifer Marshall, fellow mental health advocate. Jenn sought out stories from others when she felt alone within her trauma and pain. She started to write an anonymous blog to help others who were struggling. 

    A year and a half into her passion project, Jenn was offered to become a paid writer, spurring her to open up publicly, with her name. Flooded with thank you emails, Jenn made the decision to turn her growing blog into a show, raising $10,000 in just 31 days. Despite her success in mental health advocacy, Jenn struggled to prioritize her mental health throughout her life. 
     
    Key points:
    -       Coping with bipolar whilst under pressure to perform.
    -       Dealing with postpartum psychosis. 
    -       How Jenn went from 4 hospitalizations within 5 years to building overall wellness and becoming strong in her recovery.
    -       Why mental health advocacy is so essential to young people searching for online help.
    -       Coming to terms with the understanding that recovery is not linear. There is no shame in the time it takes to understand your mental health. 

    I hope you find value in this episode and if you think someone needs to hear it, please leave a review and pass along the message. It's my mission to see everyone prioritizing their daily mental hygiene.

    KEVIN HINES: Suicide is never the answer. It is the problem.

    KEVIN HINES: Suicide is never the answer. It is the problem.

    In this episode with suicide survivor, Kevin Hines, I dive into Kevin’s remarkable story. Kevin was born into poverty and faced severe adversity within his childhood. 


    Following being diagnosed with depression and bipolar disorder, at 19 years old Kevin planned to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge. The moment Kevin let go, he felt instant regret. 


    Fast forward to 2021 and Kevin still sometimes faces the same thoughts but he now knows how to control them. To help himself and others, Kevin created a '10 step guide to better your brain health’. As Kevin describes, ‘Suicide is never the answer. It is the problem’. 


    Key points:
    - The remarkable story of how a seal saved Kevin’s life the day he attempted to commit suicide


    - Why suicidal thoughts do not need to become actions


    - How to become self-aware enough to save yourself


    - Why suffering is an option


    I hope you find value in this episode and if you think someone needs to hear it, please leave a review and pass along the message. It's my mission to see everyone prioritizing their daily mental hygiene.
