About This Episode

In this episode, I bring on my 15-year-old niece to raise awareness around the demographic that is most affected by depression and suicide today - the LGBTQ+ community. 

“I have seen stats from surveys, showing that the LGBTQ community in young people have a higher rate in mental health issues than any other, including self-harm and higher suicidal rates.” 

A serious topic which may be affecting you directly, or you know someone who is. This episode is a must listen to everybody so we can release the stigma and shame associated with being in the LGBTQ+ community or raising a teen girl who is.  

It's another MUST listen for any mum and teen girl who may be going through this - and good to know so we can better support those who are!
