About Us

On the 4th March 2009, my life changed forever. My Dad, the man I looked up too, the man who in my eyes had 'everything' on paper took his own life. After it happened I struggled to deal with the grief, I buried the pain and found myself asking the question 'why' over and over again. I too then found myself struggling with depression and anxiety. This Podcast is all about documenting not only my own personal journey to discovering more about mental health and suicide, but to also document other stories too. It's time to talk about mental health, it's time to give it the voice it deserves and hopefully this Podcast can provide that. Hopefully this Podcast helps show others that they're not alone...


Paul McGregor is an author, lecturer, a mental health advocate, husband, Father of 2 and avid Liverpool supporter. He shares daily content, giving mental health a voice across multiple social platforms and through speaking and workshops across the UK.

Depression Has No Face

Reacting To An Article About My Dad...

So this was hard, going back through and reacting to an article published about my Dad's suicide.If I'm honest, I completely forgot about it until recently we were looking through things for some content for a documentary. Isaac hit record on the camera, as I looked back and went through the article and the comments. Including a comment, from me. The 18 year old me.This was hard, but I'm hoping my honesty helps in this episode.Also, I'm hoping that it shows that even when tragedy hits. When you're dealing with adversity. You can get through it, and things can get better.Appreciate you xSUBSCRIBE: http://www.youtube.com/c/paulmcgregorvideosFollow me on insta: http://www.instagram.com/pmcgregorcomRead my story: http://www.pmcgregor.comSay hi on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pmcgregorcom

Travel Influencers Get Real (Interview With Camille & Jean) - Behind The 'Reel' #3

To be honest, this interview really surprised me. For episode 3, I spoke to travel influencers Camille and Jean about the reality and pressures they face when it comes to social media.Their feed is inspiring, but at the same time I think it would be quite easy for some of us to compare our current lives to the travelling lifestyle they live. Also their relationship, would we compare the reality of our own relationship with what we see of theirs on social media?You can see them here -https://www.instagram.com/backpackdiariez/Going 'Behind the Reel' really emphasised just how real these two are. I've been lucky to know them for a few months prior to this interview, and I really wanted them to share their story, the challenges they face and the 'normality' of their day to day life.We spoke about:- How they became travel influencers- The judgement and rejection they received when leaving their 9-5- Arguments. Yes, they have them.- Their thoughts on social media. Is it fake or real?- The fear they have around how they're perceived online.- What they've learnt from travelling- Building a brand and balancing sponsorshipsIt was such a pleasure to sit down with these two, and I hope it showed a different side to the two people we may stumble across on Instagram. Again the main purpose behind this series is to show influencers in a light we might not see them from what they share on social media. Social media is very much a highlight reel, and we often forget these are humans behind these profiles.These two continue to inspire me, and hopefully they inspire you too.I'd love to hear your thoughts on this interview, drop me a message on social media and don't forget to leave a rating and review!
