Secrets We Share S1E11: Craig and Carmen


I caught up with Craig, his partner Carmen, and their dog Leroy in their home in Southern Canberra.


Craig shares how, on reflection, his mental issues started when he just 14 years old, and this is when the binge drinking started. He went on to have problems with alcohol, illitict drugs, and gambling

.

Mid 2018 he received a diagnosis that would change everything.



Craig also speaks about the work he's doing now with Outside the Locker Room and upcoming projects to help bring the stigma of mental helath and drug use to an end.


Carmen shares her side of the story and her experiences living with a man who has looked for answers in many of the wrong places.



Thank you to Craig and Carmen for taking time to speak with me on a chilly Sunday morning and Leroy for sleeping through the entire process

.


Thank you to Nick for being my podcast guru.
