BREAKING INTO MY LIFE
On episode ten of the Believe In Yourself Podcast, I am joined a passionate mental health advocate, a TED speaker, and a published author of Breaking Into My Life, Michelle Dickinson.
This week Michelle bravely tells her story how after years of playing the role of child caregiver, Michelle embarked on her own healing journey of self-discovery. Her memoir offers a rare glimpse into a young girl’s experience living with—and loving—her bipolar mother.
She talks about how she spent the last few years working to eradicate the mental health stigma within her own workplace by elevating compassion, causing more open conversations, and leading real change in how mental illness is understood in the workplace.
If you’re looking to improve your work or school culture when it comes to Mental health then you need to listen to this episode.
