Turns out we have the motivation to record not one but two episodes of this podcast!
This month we talked about the Geelong Football Club, and the support they’ve shown to player Mitch Clark, who has depression. We also looked at some cool stuff Anna found on the internet, how to interpret emojis, mental health support in schools and things that might seem easy but sometimes aren’t.
Warning: this episode runs to an hour and 25 minutes. Sorry. We just had lots to say.

Stuff we mentioned
It’s hard to put last night into words. In no way is my situation more important than the great win by the boys last night. I wish this would have stayed out of the media, but also understand that’s the world we live in. Depression makes very little sense and rears its head whenever it chooses and unfortunately last night was one of those times. Like I have said I’m nowhere near ‘cured’ and am still learning how to best deal with my dark days. I’m very fortunate to have such great support around me and grateful for all the messages I have received. Please if you’re struggling, reach out and ask for help. You’re not alone #youareloved
