I am happy to share with you my recent interview on Not Broken Radio, “an international radio show and podcast that was initiated to have open and honest discussion about mental health and disabilities.”
The host, Brett Francis, talks to me about Mental Health Safe Space and my personal mental health journey.
The audio is also embedded below.
Brett and I spoke briefly before and after the interview and she was incredibly warm and gracious. You can read more about Brett and Not Broken Radio here. Here is a snippet about Brett from the above link:
Brett Francis is a professional speaker and mental health advocate, with a TV and radio show. – Her radio show, Not Broken® Radio has $1.8M+ listeners/downloads per month. She’s also a best selling author and has a mental health clothing line, all aimed towards having open and honest discussion about mental health and disabilities and also to give confidence to those struggling.
When she was 6 years old, she was diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome and severe ADHD. At 17, she was also diagnosed with anxiety, OCD and panic disorder. She spent a large part of her life feeling broken, wondering what was wrong with her – depressed, as an outcast, even to the ones closest to her. In 2012 she was in two car accidents that left her unable to work for a year, and living with chronic pain ever since.
