Tim Beisiegel is a sign and logo designer & installer, but his passions in life are his family and podcasting. In 2019 his daughter was hospitalised for 97 days with Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
Tim had already been struggling with some aspects of his Mental Health, but like many men, ignored the signs and symptoms due to social norms and stigmas. But when his daughter fell ill he entered counselling to help him to be able to function and care for his family.
Podcasting was born out of this time and became another form of helpful healing as he spoke with others who also had faced challenges in their life and were moving forward as well. He now speaks in favour of Mental Health for Men and asks Men to ignore the stigmas around them and to take care of themselves so they can be there to take care of the ones they love.
He is now the host of 3 shows – Focused on Forward, Funny Science Fiction and Pop Culture Addicts and he is here with Louisa “Wizzi” Magnussen to discuss The Business of Men’s Mental Health.
