Parenting with Mental Illness-General Questions
Hi! Thank you for taking part in the Betty's Battleground "Parenting with Mental Illness" feature interview series. This series is about showing the world the humanity behind mental illness, and fighting stigma, but it is also about telling YOUR story as YOU want it told. If a question ever makes you uncomfortable and you'd like to skip it, go ahead. After you complete these we will do some more personalized questions over e-mail; you'll have an opportunity at the end of this survey to suggest any questions or topics you would like to discuss. Thank you!
Please tell me your name and contact info (e-mail/social account is fine)
Your answer
How many kids do you have?
Your answer
What mental illness(es) do you have? Are you diagnosed with all of them?
Your answer
Tell me a little bit about the process of getting diagnosed? What made you seek a diagnosis? How long were you having symptoms before your diagnosis?
Your answer
How does having this mental illness affect your ability to parent and your relationship with your children and/or partner (if applicable).
Your answer
How has your mental illness impacted other aspects of your life?
Your answer
If there was misconception you could dispel, or one fact relating to your mental illness that you could share with the world, what would it be?
Your answer
This one may be kind of weird, so feel free to skip it if it's too uncomfortable, but I did it with my PTSD and it helped a lot: Can you come up with 1-3 ways in which your mental illness helps you to be a better mother, or just person in general?
Your answer
Has having a mental illness impacted you financially, and if so, how?
Your answer
Can you walk me through an average day in your life?
Your answer
If applicable, can you tell me something which people or the media say or do that hurts you as a person with mental illness, even if it may be well-intentioned?
Your answer
Thank you again for participating in this feature. When you have finished, please e-mail a picture or two to bettysbattlegroundblog@gmail.com that I can include with your survey. A bio picture and then one or two with your family would be wonderful; if you're uncomfortable using an actual picture of yourself feel free to send a representative photo instead. Please do make sure you own the rights to it or that it is public domain. I will be e-mailing you back with a few personalized questions; if there are any particular subjects you would like to address, please write them here. PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO E-MAIL ME! The interview is not yet complete and I won't be able to post it without it! :) Please also leave your e-mail address so I can contact you if I miss your email. Thank you!
