Injured Veterans and public figures have come together to share their stories of the tragedies and obstacles they’ve faced and discuss how they’ve moved forward to lead happy and fulfilled lives…
The Resilience Sessions podcast series features compelling in-depth interviews bringing to light lifechanging and affirming experiences of veterans who have suffered devastating injuries, and the unknown personal struggles of celebrity guests who have fought to overcome mental health problems, disability, devastating injury and bereavement.
In the first series, guests Carol Vorderman, Jonny Benjamin, Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, Michael Caines, Vick Hope, Ray Winstone and veterans Simon Harmer, Stewart Harris, Nerys Pearce, Mark Ormrod, Shaun Stocker and Ken Bellringer share their innermost thoughts and feelings about resilience, adversity, and how it has shaped them.
They have found that sharing their experience is the best way to help others tackle increasing pressures on mental health in the modern era.
The Resilience Sessions podcast follows on from the hugely successful Making Generation R – Resilience Through Inspiration, a campaign from Blesma, the charity for limbless veterans, and The Drive Project, the creative social enterprise, where wounded veterans deliver resilience workshops to 50,000 11-18-year olds and first responders across the UK based on their own stories of overcoming adversity.
