Men Matter | KindnessCan - an East Coast Radio Podcast

Men Matter

This Movember, the KindnessCan duo is diving into a conversation often left unspoken: men's mental health. They pose a crucial question to men everywhere: "How is your mental health?" What's your response to this important question?

In this episode of KindnessCan, Jane Linley-Thomas talks us through her very inspiring and evocative Movember Campaign. For every day in November, the campaign has been highlighting a different KZN person in a photographic portrait and a brave testimony around their mental health. 

Styled colorfully by Jane’s Rejoyce Collection and photographed by Amy White - the images are playful, personal, and powerful. 

Answering questions like: “How is your mental health?” - the testimonies highlight some of the very real vulnerabilities of men and people from all walks of life. 

A standout theme is the imperative to be kind to everyone because you don’t always know the journey that they are walking. Listen to this podcast above.

Meanwhile, in a previous episode of the KindnessCan podcast, Jane Linley-Thomas and psychologist Paul Bushell shared some of the new and old wisdom that they've been collecting over the last two years in a post-pandemic world.

Through many eye-to-eye and heart-to-heart conversations with schools, corporates, and all of you, Jane and Paul keep hearing how important taking care of the relationship you are having with YOU is to being a kinder version of you.

Your cup can't just be filled to help others and be the best version of you, it needs to be overflowing.

But... are the things that you are doing to fill your cup really filling your cup? Or, are they adding to the drain?

In this episode, the Kind Duo take a look at how to separate real energisers from the sometimes and the fake energisers that we all fall for.

As always, it's a light, practical, and positive listen! Listen below.
