Tales from the Bathtub is a project that focuses on talking about mental health, wellness, and recovery issues and giving voice to those who are often ignored in the conversation around mental health. This includes conversations around access to competent health care for underrepresented groups such as transgender individuals, people with disabilities, people of color, and folks from different socioeconomic statuses. This project is dedicated to bringing those important perspectives to light, especially those with experience of living with a heavily stigmatized mental health concern or issue such as a personality disorder, psychosis, or a substance use disorder, and the psychological component of living with a chronic or terminal illness.
The project aims to give voice, empathy, and understanding to the stories of those who are often left out of the conversation on mental health and psychological well-being. Those stories will be shared via podcasts, blog posts, and sometimes videos. The project will also focus on sharing practical coping skills that anybody can use to cope with psychological distress.
Join Tales from the Bathtub as we learn to navigate recovery & wellness together.
