Thursday Thoughts: the weekly Let’s Talk About Mental Health newsletter (9 December, 2021)

Hello Talkers!

I’ve been thinking about how I can continue to grow my YouTube channel and my podcast (which is now in Spotify’s Health & Fitness Top 30 in Australia, the UK and the US… wow! Thanks!) in a way that feels right to me, which means not filling it with ads, while still ensuring that I’m able to cover the growing costs involved with producing and distributing my work (this stuff isn’t cheap and I’ve been funding it myself). With that in mind I have an announcement to make in this week’s newsletter which will then go out in Episode 110 of the podcast, due for release on Sunday December 19.

The news is that to keep my content ad-free I am launching a Patreon where you can either contribute a small monthly amount to become a General Supporter (and receive my eternal gratitude) or contribute a little bit more each month to become an Official Supporter, where you’ll not only receive a monthly video with exclusive previews and updates on what is coming up on both the podcast and my YouTube channel, but you’ll also be able to submit questions about better mental health to me and I will answer all (reasonable) questions in the video as well (anonymously if you like)!

If you find the work that I do on my podcast and/or YouTube channel helpful, please consider becoming a supporter on Patreon. I’m determined to keep my content ad-free (i.e. With no ads interrupting my episodes midway, because that annoys me personally so I won’t do it to you!), and so this is an alternate way to fund my work (because this stuff takes time and money, and the behind-the-scenes costs are not cheap).

So… greetings and salutations, and a warm welcome to another newsletter. I hope you enjoy my quick snapshot of my favourite things this week — hopefully at least one of them will make you smile/feel inspired. Have a fantastic week and a brilliant weekend!
