In our newest episode of Have The Nerve, Susan speaks to Geraldine Watts. After a series of accidents that affected her spine, in 2016 her intervertebral disc disintegrated, and she lost mobility, function and sensation. It was only in 2020 where she was formerly diagnosed with a spinal cord injury that set her off to find and absorb as much information about her disability as possible.

We talk about her journey with mental health and mental wellbeing, the barriers of accessing health services, and even general information living in rural and regional Australia, we talk about courage and how she’s turned from feeling shy to an outspoken advocate for people with disabilities in her now regional community.
