Rosie from @Mindwaves1 Chris from @ALLIANCEScot talks to Self Management Award winner Twimukye Mushaka

For World Mental Health Day, we spoke to Twimukye Mushaka, winner of the Shazia Akhtar Individual Transformational Story of the Year at the @ALLIANCEScot Self Management Awards.

Here, she shares her story from arriving in the UK as a refugee 17 years ago to working full time for the poverty Alliance, all while managing complex disabilities.

She says that there is no rulebook for self management; it’s different for everyone. But Twimukye puts her success down to three things:

  • a good relationship with healthcare professionals
  • being around supportive people who understand her experience
  • taking time to take care of herself and listen to her body

You can listen to her life-affirming take on self management here.
