The road to authenticity: lived experience, disclosure and being open

When I mentioned to a friend and fellow Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) trainee that I’d been approached to write a blog for PsyPAG, he joked that I should write about being a “mental illness mascot”. It’s true, I think I was asked because of the fact I’m so open about my lived experience. But his comment got me thinking; I haven’t always been this open about my experiences, and I wanted to share a bit of my experiences of the process of feeling able to disclose.
