Connections and Conversations – the End of the Week

Thank you to everyone who tuned in for our Connections and Conversations week!  I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

Over the course of the week I’ve tried to give you a snippet of things to come.  Pills and Blades is very much a shallow overview of the darkest moments of my journey while Aspects of Choice and Positivity start to open the door to supporting a depressed or anxious person.  There is much more on the way!

The Founder’s Favourite

Looking back at the week, I think my favourite part of the week was having the privilege of interviewing Jeremy.  Such an open and honest testimony of his daily struggles and how he copes.  I’ll be honest, I was a little blown away by his openness.  It was a great conversation to have.

If you liked reading Jeremy’s interview and want to hear the original, I will be releasing the recorded interview on my Patreon site as a podcast for you to listen to.  Check out the page for more details!

Future Content and Conversations

Over the coming months I shall be delving into different approaches to supporting people going through depression and anxiety – listening to them, talking to them and some of the things to say so that you can help them along.  I shall also be unpacking the taboo topic of self-harm, bringing you a greater understanding of why people turn to those sorts of coping mechanisms.  Stay tuned for more!

Please Support Us

With so many people struggling with depression and anxiety and so many others trying to help them, we really want to shine a light as far as possible to support these people.  Unfortunately we are only a couple of people and we need your help to do it.  There are a number of ways you can do so, take a look…

Sharing our content is one of the most important ways for us.  Whether it’s over Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or email, please share our posts far and wide.  If you know someone who is struggling, take a little light to them and give them access to our content so that they might find encouragement or assistance.

Our forums are now up and running so please also join those. Connect with others walking similar roads, share experiences and help us form a community that can support each other through even the darkest, blackest of nights.

If you would like to support us in a monetary way, check out our Patreon and PayPal links to view the benefits of doing so. We would really value your support as it would enable us to keep this site running so that people can be helped.

Those are just a couple of different ways that you can support us.  Both Cheryl and I and the others who are connecting through this site really appreciate your support in whatever form you can take to help us.

Take care, everyone!
