I was invited by the lovely Tina Clare, who co-founded “Talk, Change, Grow” and also the associated FB Group, “let’s talk mental Health” to do a recorded interview to talk about my new book “Great Britain and Cornwall” edition one.
Tina got in touch after seeing my post regarding the journey I had been through leading up to me writing this book and beyond.
I’m not going to give away to much what we discussed, I will let you see for yourselves when the interview is aired, but let’s just say it’s a frank, honest and very emotional account of my story, a story that only the very closest of my family & friends know about.
Hopefully when it’s aired it will highlight the stigma surrounding certain illnesses that some people may find difficult to talk about and show that groups and organisations, just like Tina’s are out there to help anyone who needs to reach out for support.
Remember there’s a story behind every person and a reason why they’re the way they are.
If just one person who watches this interview or reads my memoirs, which I’m giving permission for Tina to show, can turn their life around or even save a life then it’s all been worth it.
It’s my aim now to help as many people as I can by raising the awareness to just reach out and ask for help, however difficult it maybe you can overcome the stigmas and come through the other side.
Never think you are alone......
Finally I just want to thank Tina again and also “Talk, change, grow” & “Let’s talk mental health” for inviting me to discuss my book and memoirs.
I will keep you updated on when the interview goes out.
Below is a brief explanation by the co-founders of this amazing group.
All the best
Keep safe, keep smiling.
WELCOME TO TALK CHANGE GROW
Founded by two long standing, close friends who share the same passion, we have a desire to pass on what we have learned through our own, very different, but nevertheless, painful experiences, over many years of suffering poor mental health.
Our organisation’s approach is specifically targeted to reach regular people who are experiencing overwhelming emotions. Examples include anxiety, stress, worry, guilt, shame, loneliness, desperation, confusion, inadequacy, addiction, and the list goes on.
We at Talk Change Grow (TCG) emphatically believe that you can become the expert in managing your own, crippling and spiralling mental ill health symptoms. Some are physical and some are psychological and we will walk you through the differences.
Sure, there are steps that you will need to take in your recovery, but they are manageable, doable and you are not alone. Maybe for the first time in a long time, you will not face this alone. The pain that you are sitting in does not have to be that way. We have, or rather you have, the solutions, we just need to harness them.
