Tracey Maxfield is back on 10 Minute Mindset to talk about the live event she is organizing to help children understand the importance of help when it comes to mental illness, that symptoms of mental disorders are more common than we think, and the power of always believing that there is hope for a brighter future.
Tracey is a nurse with over 35 years experience in the healthcare field in the UK, USA and Canada. She is certified in gerontology and dementia care and is a passionate dementia advocate and educator.
Since the release of her book, Escaping the Rabbit Hole: my journey through depression, Tracey has become a staunch advocate for Mental Illness and Mental Health Awareness and Bullying and completed the course, Bringing Mental Health to Schools.
She has met with teenagers ages 11 to 15 years to talk about bullying and mental illness and has appeared on numerous podcasts, live radio shows and ABC KOMO News 4, KSHV 45, and NBC News 6 television shows. In June, Tracey was featured in a series of articles by HelloCare magazine in Australia.
In September, Tracey embarked on a new life journey, she sold her home, donated most of her possessions to various charities and made a commitment to try and make a difference in the world and is spending six months traveling in the USA, talking about mental illness and bullying in children and teenagers.
Her philosophy is to Engage children and teenagers, to Educate them about mental illness and bullying and to Empower them to develop confidence and skills to continue to move ahead in their own life journey.
