In episode 150 of The Just Checking In Podcast, we took it back to where it all began by checking back in with JCIP #1 guest, poet and mental health advocate, Tim Fletcher.
In Part 2 of Tim’s journey, we reflect on the first episode and how far he has come, how far our Founder Freddie Cocker has come and how Vent has grown alongside his mental health recovery.
We delve into why the current political climate, specifically the cost of living crisis and climate change have caused Tim mental health difficulty in recent years, what he is doing to manage it and his hopes and ambitions for the future.
We finish by talking about his beloved cocker-spaniel dog Fred and how he helped him with his mental health through the Covid-19 pandemic.
Thank you to all the Venters who have helped us reach JCIP #150 and supported us in the last 3 years since the podcast started. Here’s to the next 150 JCIPs!
As always, #itsokaytovent
