The Big Launch
While we have been doing a lot of development work and direct promotion behind the scenes, today marks the ‘big launch’ of our current competitions. Please see our competitions page and read the article on the Yorkshire Post website.
Perspectives is Integrity Media’s blog, which is twinned with our Podcast. But where our podcast will aim to openly present and discuss ideas and thoughts around the challenges of dealing with mental health, including the stories of our authors; this blog hopes to focus on the issues we face in society that unwittingly help nurture and propagate this ever expanding unseen health challenge.
Put simply, ‘Perspectives’ is a podcast and blog based open discussion that looks to focus on the root causes of poor mental health, as much as the challenges facing those suffering with it. Like any medical condition, poor mental health, occurs for two reasons. First our personal cumulative history and experiences can lead us to a level of susceptibility or vulnerability. This is the internal piece of the puzzle, which we will be discussing openly through our podcasts. Secondly, and possibly more significantly, the external environment to which we are exposed. This is in many cases the ‘trigger’ for poor mental health and is much harder to change, but through our blog, we will pick themes and discuss them in an open-ended observational way. It is usually impossible to crystalise everyone’s thoughts around a single opinion or solution. But what we hope to do is channel ideas in a positive direction.
