Mental Health Awareness, isn't just about being aware that mental health is there, it's about being aware of the causes of it. And there are two (oversimplification) causes, internal and external. Social Justice is about creating a world where people are on a level playing field, meaning that the EXTERNAL componnents of mental health are all about social justice!

Phil Hill is someone who identifies as trans-masc. A term that I was very unfamiliar with before getting to know Phil's work. They are a blogger, a speaker and a creator on all things mental health and gender identity and they do great work on explaining many of these issues in a perfect balance between measured and passionate.

In this episode we discuss various trans issues, focussing particularly on the specifc issues that affect the Transmasc community as their issues (at least in the media) are often pushed to one side.

Let's be straight up, I don't think calories on menus is a good idea. I think it hurts too many people that in my eyes completely negates how it benefits those who aren't affected by eating disorders or body image issues. So... here's my thoughts on all that!

Like many hidden illnesses to a lot of people (who exclusively have never suffered from it) Chronic Pain is "all in your head". A tremendously invalidating thing to hear when every day you are experiencing one form of pain or another.

This is an expression that our guest Petra Phoenix has heard more times than she cares to count, and a sentiment that she would wish to educate people on. As acceptance and understanding may not cure chronic pain, but they'd certainly make living with it that little bit easier!

It should be said upfront that this episode contains swearing. But it also includes an amazing woman, representing for Tourette's Syndrome in an informative, funny and just downright sweet way.

Tourette's is a very misunderstood condition and Moxxi does a fantastic job of teaching us about it!

For my 40th birthday I decided to give myself a gift... I invited myself on the podcast as a guest and got one of my all time favourite mental health advocates, talk show hosts and down right wonderul human MXIETY to come on and interview me. It got weird... like really quickly, but then we both settled in to the reversed roles and I think it went wonderfully!

The main thing is I do believe this episode gives you a bigger insight to me than any epsiode that has come before so from that respect alone I can only think of it as a HUGE success!

I first met Emma when I realised that my mental health content wasn't very intersectional. A lot of the issues that effect trans people and their mental health don't even pop up on the radar of cis people and I wanted to do something about this! Our first interview last year was as much for my education and understanding as it was for the audience.

What I got out of that conversation however was so much more, and above all I made a dear friend. 

In this episode Emma talks about the ongoing journey with her transition and talks in an extremely understanding way about how we can all better support each other.
