Mental Health. Connection is Key.
Hi everyone, Yvonne Heath here from Love Your Life to Death
and I am back in the Hunters Bay radio studio. I'm on the other side
of the Plexiglas and I'm here with my dear friend and guest
Suzanne Witt Foley. Hello, Susan!
We had a wonderful conversation about mental health.
And Suzanne, if you want to just share a little bit and we'll
encourage everyone to listen to our show.
Absolutely. Yes. We talked a bit about what I do, which is teach a
course called Mental Health First Aid. It's a two day Certificate course
that is a global phenomenon taught all around the world. (I took it)
Yes, you took it so you can vote for it. Throughout COVID of course I
have not been working. But I'm gearing up for September with
distancing practices in place. I've got some course booked.
I'm really excited after having six months, six glorious months off.
Looking forward to getting back into it again!
We are talking about mental health because it is a really important
topic and just having an honest conversation and you shared an incredible story of how we can just show up for each other despite
not being able to do it in person, right?
I am wearing my “Wilson” shirt today. For all of you who don't know
who “Wilson” is you must watch the movie Castaway. Because connection is key. Absolutely connection is key. So I encourage you to listen to the show and certainly reach out to Suzanne with Foley anytime.
When people ask me what is Mental Health First Aid and if I could describe it in one word, it's about connection. I can't think of a time
when other than now, when connection (as you say) was it's so
important. The most important thing with Mental Health First Aid
are skills that if you don't have them yet, now is the time.
So listen to the show and reach out.
Thank you everyone. Thank you Suzanne.

Absolutely love your T-shirt. That movie is one of the very best and bears repetition for sure - I love it. I agree, Wilson was a lifeline, one of the best.

Thanks so much, Anne Belle. I love that you love my Wilson t-shirt. Really does speak to how desperately we need connection! Just might have to watch Castaway again myself! ;)
