Juliette Burton – Member of the Speakers Collective

The last year has been a challenging one for us all. Whether you’ve been spending more time at home, going to work as an essential worker or making the move to homeschooling, COVID-19 has led to a huge change in the way we are able to lead our lives. After so many months of restrictions, you might be struggling with boredom or loneliness, or be stressed about your job and finances. But it’s important to remember that you’re not alone.

Good Thinking has been working in collaboration with The Speakers Collective to produce a mini-series that explores how the last twelve months have affected people with lived experience of mental health. The videos share a range of lived experience and provide advice and suggestions that might help you or people you know.

In this video Juliette Burton, comedian, writer and member of The Speakers Collective shares her mental health journey, and how her support network has helped with her mental health, particularly through the lockdown.
