- Let's Talk Crazy
- Who, What, Where, Am I? A talk about Panic and Dissociation
Brooke Marie Bridges is an empathetic, engaging, knowledgeable, and impactful mental health speaker with a journey that took her into facing her own darkness in order to come out stronger and more resilient. Growing up a child actress introduced a lot of self-image and self-worth issues and created symptoms of anxiety, depression, and panic attacks; and the many behaviors that sometimes live alongside those feelings.
As a teenager and a young adult, Brooke engaged in many negative coping skills to try and deal with her feelings. Things such as drinking, drugs, self-harming, reckless behaviors, stealing, and obsessive compulsive tendencies. All of these behaviors, negative or not, were an attempt to cope with the feelings that she just couldn't seem to get rid of. The reason why she couldn't deal with them, is because she felt she had no safe space to talk about them. Being able to talk about our feelings and have them validated is one of the gateways to healing.
In her presentations she talks about her 3 main sources of guidance for her healing, as well as all of the ways in which she could move toward a place of feeling better. After realizing that healing is a holistic endeavor, she has been able to use so many different tools to find happiness and joy. From traditional talk therapy with a licensed therapist, to group therapies, to nature therapy with her brother Raei from The Rusty Anvil, to meditation and mindfulness and a new spiritual practice, to eating healthy foods, to finding hobbies and things she loves to do and finds joy in, to connecting back to the earth by growing and farming her own food... there are so many beautiful ways to heal and she shares them with everyone who will listen in hopes the skills she has acquired will help others in their journey toward emotional and mental wellness.
