Sharon Bull from Compassionate Voices shares her story

Sharon Bull lived thirty years in silence with her mental health issues. She felt isolated and scared. Sharon feared others would treat her differently if they knew about her mental health issues.

Now, working as an inspirational speaker, author, and the creator/facilitator of ‘The Power of YOU & This Is ME workshops, she is determined to get people talking. Her passion is to help others through her lived-in experiences, whilst also encouraging others to do the same.

In 2019, she also registered a charitable organisation called Compassionate Voices CIC. Over the past two years the not-for-profit organisation has been helping women and young girls affected by the pandemic. This has resulted in a growing online community called ‘Compassionate Voices.’

More recently, the charity has also partnered with Dunelm Stores (including Chesterfield) to run safe-space regional hubs.

During Mental Health Awareness week, Sharon will be at the DVA Hub and Chesterfield Pausa Cafe. She will be sharing her story and snippets from her new book ’Thirty Years in Silence’.  She will also answer questions about the Compassionate Voices Community, Dunelm Pausa regional hubs and The Power of YOU Workshop.
