My co-worker Cary facilitates Bridges with me and we do a lot of the dissociation talks and training together. Last year she was interviewed for the Insight program on SBS, and bravely spoke a little about her experiences living with DID. The program ended up with a lot of material from many different people and sadly had to edit her interview quite short, but it was a great show and the interview is well worth a watch. She’s given me permission to link to it here. 🙂
Here’s her bio from the Insight website:
Cary has struggled with mental health issues since primary school.She has suffered psychotic episodes, depression and has been diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder, formally known as multiple personality disorder.She says young people need better services and that medication is not always the answer.
Cary is now helping other young people through the Mental Illness Fellowship of South Australia.
Watch the show here, Cary’s interview starts at 10.19 in part three if you don’t want to watch the whole program.
