Mindstep: Launch of The Mindstep Podcast
Thank you to the Mindstep Foundation for sharing the following article:
In March 2021, we officially launched the Mindstep Podcast. Over the course of this year, our podcast series will cover a range of topics from mental health and suicide prevention to dealing with grief and loss. We will be joined by leading industry experts, as well as those who are experts by experience.
We know that talking is one of the best ways to reduce the stigma around these issues. The more conversations we have, the more myths we can bust and barriers we can break down.
In Episode 1, Tracey Davies speaks openly about the loss of her 22-year old son, Max, following his depression. In this honest conversation with daughter, Georgia, they provide an insight into their own experience in the hope that it will be useful to others.
The discussion starts with Max’s story and covers mental health in young men, the impact of a death by suicide and trying to rebuild after such a tragic loss. They also discuss the reasons why the family chose to establish the Mindstep Foundation in Max’s memory.
