We are very excited to announce our new podcast series Life with Alcohol and Drugs!
We will publish a new episode every month and will feature topics and guest speakers to discuss life with alcohol and drugs and offer support and advice to anyone who needs it.
Our very first episode has launched today Wednesday 19th May. Episode one is all about ‘Becoming a Support Group Leader’ with Mel McPherson from My Support Day and the All In The Family support service.
We speak with Mel about her journey and how she started My Support Day. We also chat about how she has continued to support families throughout the Covid pandemic, and how she even started a new service called All in the Family in the first lockdown here in Scotland!
‘There’s been many a moment I’ve had moments of self-doubt and I think I’m crazy, like who am I kidding? But you just need to park them and put them aside and remember why you’re initially doing it…what the reasons are that you’re doing it for. That’s to help and support other people. Aye don’t overthink it and keep it really simple.’
