    Petra Tilly

    Petra Tilly a Devon based artist, tells her story of helping her son through his mental health struggles and how that led her to an area of work helping other carers. Being a carer is hard work, we spoke about how a lot of people won’t even realise they are carers. There are support networks out there for people helping a friend or family member. Such as; Rethink, Mind, Carers Trust and various other local support networks. At our event in Brighton on Wednesday we had Shirley talk about her experiences with her son and the process of setting up Changes Ahead (a support network for carers). Petra talks honestly about her experiences and worries as a mother. If you have any thoughts or want to chat about things spoke about in this episode, please feel free to get in touch. Also you can share your experience with #storiesformentalhealth

    Kea Tossavainen - Mental Health Awareness Week

    Kea Tossavainen - Mental Health Awareness Week

    Today's story is from Kea Tossavainen, from Finland. She talks about her experience of having Bipolar Disorder. She discusses her trigger, trying to gain control on her life, the support she has been given, her medication and making decisions that are good for her. I found my time with Kea very interesting, I came away from our meeting thinking a lot about the hormones in the contraceptive pill causing emotional instability within young women. Also, the idealisation and glorification of mental health that can be found on social media amongst young people. What are your thoughts on this? Get in touch via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

    Thanks for listening and we will be back with you tomorrow for another story!

Inspirational

There should be a Share Your Story in every town, city and village across the globe! SYS has uncovered so many emotional/uplifting/inspiring/informative/shocking stories from my own community that I would never have heard about otherwise. So glad there's a podcast now so these profound stories can be heard far and wide.
