If you're struggling with anxiety & depression, reach out to Beyond Blue here.
Before Jessie Stephen's went on maternity leave, she sat down with Mia on No Filter for their most candid conversation yet. Anxiety and depression are mental health issues that so many Australians will experience in their life. But for Jessie, her experiences with mental health issues were almost inevitable.
Jessie’s latest book, Something Bad Is Going to Happen is her most personal project yet. Jessie taps into her own experiences with mental health to create an incredible fictional story that follows the character of Adella, a woman nearing the end of her late twenties who has found herself in a psychiatric unit, recovering from a mental breakdown.
In this conversation, Jessie candidly opens up about her very real and personal battle with anxiety and depression and what happened during pregnancy.
THE END BITS:
