Shared Experiences: Relationships in a pandemic

Featured Image

Have you ever imagined having a baby in the middle of a highway? Troy and his wife didn't have to imagine, it happened to them in real life on Toronto's busy 407 highway. We wanted to know what this was like and how the whole experience of having a pregnant wife during the pandemic impacted his mental health. So, we caught up with him to get a glimpse into his life (and mind). 

Surely the ups and downs of the pandemic caused some strains on relationships and many have been wondering how to sustain or mend relationships with so much time spent together. For some, the pandemic improved relationships while others experienced challenges. 

In this episode of Shared Experiences, Troy shares his thoughts on what it takes to be in a successful relationship, what common misconceptions exist for relationships and his overall take on how mental health and relationships co-exist.

Brought to you by real people with real stories, our Shared Experiences series shines light on the mental health struggles we all commonly face. 1 in 5 people experience a mental illness in a given year and by the time someone reaches 40, the prevalence is 1 in 2 and many don't reach out for help.
 At MindBeacon, we strive to change that. Care to share your story and help others remember they're not alone? Reach out to community@mindbeacon.com to play your part in removing the stigma. 

If you're struggling, we're here to help. Reach out to us or visit us here to complete your assessment if you're ready to start your therapy journey.
