This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. We will be releasing a video each day this week of ‘Cork Stories’ hosted by Izzy Showbizzy in association with Pieta House. In each video podcast she will speak with people who either help those with mental health issues or those who have gone through struggles themselves.
In this episode Izzy speaks with entrepreneur Pat Phelan about his darkest moments, how he has managed almost twenty years of sobriety and what he does to keep on top of his mental health in today’s fast-paced culture.
If you have been affected by any of the issues raised you can phone the free Pieta House 24-hour suicide helpline on 1800 247 247. Or, alternatively, text HELP to 51444
