Ep 37: Lawyer & stigma fighter Beth Beattie

Julie talks to Toronto-based lawyer Beth Beattie who is one of the Friends of the Bell Let’s Talk campaign – Canadians from all walks of life sharing their personal stories about living with mental illness. Beth spent years hiding her Bipolar Disorder from almost everyone in her life – partly because she was worried about how clients and co-workers would treat her if they knew about her illness. But that all changed two years ago when she decided to open up to a couple of co-workers who were struggling with mental illness issues in their families. Beth knew she could help by sharing her experience – and so she did. And she hasn’t stopped talking since.
