Mental health myth busting

This year I’ve taken a lot more to video for several reasons. Partly, I am more comfortable with it now and it’s an easier format to share as if I were talking to you. Partly because I finally have video editing software that means I can make half decent videos. 😅

Regardless, I was inspired to start a myth busting series around mental health. In these videos I cover the following topics:

  1. Therapy is only for crazy people
  2. Vulnerability is weakness
  3. Just “turn off” your negative emotions
  4. Don’t be so emotional, it’s not professional
  5. Feeling depressed? Just throw yourself into work
  6. Mental health is bad for your career

I’ve loved filming these videos and you can view them all on YouTube here. I’ve also uploaded them as IGTV videos.

Do you have a myth you’d like me to bust?
