My Family, Mental Illness, and Me

10:00 AM GMT+1 on October 15, 2023

    My Family, Mental Illness, and Me - More than three million young people in the UK either live or care for a loved one experiencing a mental illness. This podcast, brought to you by the charity Our Time and presented by Dr Pamela Jenkins, features conversations with a loved one about what this might be like.

    It explores this complicated topic with sensitivity, providing a sense of companionship and solidarity for any listeners who can relate to these stories. Episodes so far include an interview with the celebrated ornithologist Mya-Rose Craig, talking about her mum and her experiences with bipolar disorder. There’s also a chat with Emma Kennedy, who wrote about her mother in her book ‘Letters from Brenda: My Mother’s Lifetime of Secrets.’
