Feeling Good Podcast
The Foundation for Positive Mental Health (FPMH) is a charity dedicated to promoting skills training for positive mental health, to enhance everyday wellbeing, increase resilience to, and recovery from, mental health difficulties. To support these objectives, they offer a variety of programs, services, and advice, from teaching simple exercises such as breath control and sports mind training techniques, to Positive Mental Training Programme workshops, Feeling Good for Schools sessions, the Feeling Good app and as we are focussing on today, their Feeling Good podcast series.
"Localgiving has allowed us to collaborate with and support the local artists who have been involved in the creation of the podcasts”
Launched in 2022, the series includes editions on ‘Let’s Talk Mental Health’, ‘‘Lived Experience of Teacher Burnout’ and Positive Mental Health Skills – Breathing’.
This project has been made possible by a grant from Localgiving and the People’s Postcode Trust, a grant-giving charity funded by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
Serena Steptoe, Podcast Creator tells us more; 'It is with thanks to Localgiving that The Foundation for Positive Mental Health (FPMH) are able to produce the Feeling Good Mini Series, a podcast series dedicated to raising awareness of and destigmatising mental health experiences. Centering individuals with lived experience of emotional adversity, as well as professionals within the field of Psychology and Education, the podcast promotes strategies to maintain positive mental wellbeing. Stemming from FPMHs Feeling Good for Schools programme, the series focuses on wellbeing within the education sector, more specifically in supporting teachers who’s wellbeing is often overlooked with schools facing tight budgets and limited resources.
“However, the principles and skills discussed in the series are applicable to any individual who is interested in concepts and strategies within mental health. Localgiving has allowed us to collaborate with and support the local artists who have been involved in the creation of the podcasts” concluded Steptoe.
