Welcome to episode 5 of The Orlagh Claire Podcast!
This week I was in conversation with Emma Haughey, founder of Flip the Script NI, an Instagram page offering mental health resources and opening up the conversation around mental health in young people and students.
I had a very long and deep conversation with Emma about mental health and am very thankful at how open Emma was with me about her own mental health journey, which I’m sure you will find very enlightening.
What we discussed
Emma and I had a very long conversation, as there was so much to talk about. We talked about Emma’s experience, working for the mental health department of her university and setting up her Flip the Script NI Instagram account.
One of the topics we discussed at length was social media and how this can impact our mental health. From following people we don’t really know, or the Love Island-like Instagram models that use a lot of filters.
You can follow Emma’s Flip the Script NI page at @flipthescriptNI where she shares many resources and tips for those who are struggling or want to explore and discuss their mental health.
