Krista Kirby’s Yarn - That Extra Support

Our Way

Added by Desert Pea Media

Description Part of the 'Break It Down: Community Conversations Around Mental Health' project 2017/2018. (DPM/PHN WNSW)

Being a parent and making those tough decisions, is one of the hardest parts of the job. Especially, when you have to speak up about your child’s mental health. Krista Kirby is both a mum, an active member of her community and a reminder that - even though a problem exists, it’s still difficult for people to acknowledge it. If her child was having mental health issues, Krista wouldn’t sit around and wait for help. Her advice to all of us is to have the conversation, and if it feels like the issue is bigger than you know how to deal with, seek out that help to ensure that your child gets the support they need to make it through.
