Sandi's Story - Fighting Battles in Our Heads

Sandi Givens is a specialist in workplace mental health and well-being, a qualified Mental Health First Aider, and a volunteer member of the Beyond Blue Ambassadors and Speakers Bureau in Australia.  She has experienced postnatal depression (as they call it there), as well as post-traumatic stress disorder - so she is keenly aware of the isolation someone with mental health challenges can experience.

Sandi and I have a great conversation about the stigma surrounding these challenges, and the continued difficulties we have as a society with talking about mental health issues.  She shares practical strategies we can use to live full, healthy, and happy lives.
