The Three Taboos: Cancer, Grief and Mental Health


In episode 1 of this podcast I’m asking the question what is mental health? It seems a good time to ask this question as I launch the podcast during the 2020 Mental Health Awareness Week. Being aware of mental health is massively important in order to help ourselves and others, but if we don’t know what it is, how can we be aware of it? Let’s start with the basics of mental health and then from there, we can start opening up a host of conversations that will help reduce the stigma surrounding something we all have. Remember, if you want any further information on mental health head over to my website www.modefor.co.uk or www.facebook.com/modefor *** Thank you so much for listening today. Storytelling is one of the oldest forms of communication so that’s why this podcast is full of stories and experiences of my own and some amazing guests which I hope will help you build resilience, feel hope and find happiness when you need it most. That’s what I’m here to do; support you through the highs and lows. Consider me your coach, confidant, champion and cheerleader! We all have mental health with 1 in 4 of us experiencing mental ill health at any one time. We will all experience grief and one in two of us will be affected by cancer, so it’s time to start talking about these things in an open and honest way to support ourselves and each other.
