The lived experience podcast is about creating conversations around mental health and in particular stories surrounding growing up with a mental illness in the family. As a child of a single mother with BiPolar, I wanted to create interviews that would fill the content gap around this subject and lesser-known issues that are covered in the current mental health awareness movement. Mental health awareness and advocacy go far beyond depression and anxiety. I hope that these discussions shine a lot on issues you may not be aware of or even inform you to know that you are not alone.Learn more at www.livedexperiencepodcast.com

    Mental Health Awarness Needs To Stop? My interview with Jimmy Mitchell about all things Mental Illness

    I was interviewed by Jimmy Mitchell from My Online Guy, and at the end of the episode, we touched on mental health awareness and illness for around 20 mins. 

    In these 20 minutes, I share some information that may be hard to hear; however, I do stand by my thoughts on the current mental health awareness movement.

    Emergency episode, R U OK Day, the time for awareness is over? People living with bipolar have a suicide risk 17 times that of the general population!

    Emergency episode, R U OK Day, the time for awareness is over? People living with bipolar have a suicide risk 17 times that of the general population!

    I wanted to record this emergency podcast before R U OK Day, which is today, with my thoughts around it and a perspective from someone who has lived with someone who has had a serious mental illness for many years. I also talk about a very gutsy marketing ploy by a company called Pilot in response to R U OK Day, which is controversial and true!

    Paul Green and why is getting hard help so hard in Australia, personal story?

    Paul Green and why is getting hard help so hard in Australia, personal story?

    Paul Green was a Rugby League legend who unfortunately chose to end his life recently, which has brought this back in the front of people's minds in Australia.

    In this episode, I run through some thoughts on why this still happens and how we need to go beyond surface-level awareness.

    I also talk about my challenges in accessing good help, which I still feel is a problem for many people in Australia.
