Barbara's Story - for THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL podcast series

Barbara’s teenaged mixed-race marriage and pregnancy set in motion a massive change in her outlook, and mental and physical health problems. Battling Post-Natal Depression and undiagnosed Post-Traumatic-Stress Disorder years ago was enough for Barbara to consider suicide as she was left alone with the heavy responsibility of child-care whilst medicated. It took a breakdown and psychotherapy to help her to make sense of what her life had become and how she could improve it. She has now healed her relationship with her family and offers words of encouragement to others.
