Checkin’ #KeepTalkingMH



Community is such an important thing in this world, and social media does make it easier for us to form those communities. Forming friendships from around the world, understanding people and topics we may not have been open to before. Ultimately, feeling less alone with whatever we are going through or living with.

This episode, I am joined by Mental Health Advocate Power Couple  Rebecca Lombardo and Joe Lombardo. They are the podcast hosts of Voices For Change 2.0 Podcast and the creators of the community building hashtag, #KeepTalkingMH on Twitter.

Two incredible people who ushered me into my advocacy and podcasting.

Make sure to use #KeepTalkingMH on all social media platforms. Finding support and the community we need, and openly continuing the conversation on Mental Health.

 


Checkin’ Behind The Smile



In aid of the Mental Health Charity MIND  the “Behind The Smile” Art Exhibition  was born from the mind and paintbrushes of Artist Toby Brown. This week’s guest.

Toby, with his own mental health struggles and journey, decided to help open the conversation with his most valuable tool. His most valuable therapy. His art.

It all started with his own self portraits while he was in the depths of psychosis. Soon “Behind the Smile” portraits extended to friends, family, celebrities, and political figures. Breaking the stigma surrounding Mental Health  & Mental Health Conditions by each shedding their own masks. Its quite amazing the effects, when even one person grants us permission to see what is behind their smile. It shows us we are not alone in our struggle, that there is no shame, and that we are all stronger together in that.

Make sure to follow Toby Brown on Instagram. Get your daily dose of his work, his genius, and feel a little less alone with whatever you are struggling with. https://www.instagram.com/tobybrownartist/
