51. Survivor Self-Worth + Cristabelle's Mental Health Journey

How can the “invisible” injury affect our self worth? Survivors often don’t realize their own identity as separate from their brain injury. Living with symptoms for so long can take a toll on mental health. It’s also easy to take in how other people view the “invisible” injury and let it negatively impact how we view ourselves. But you are more than your injury, and there is hope for improvement!

This week, Cristabelle goes deeper into some lesser known pieces of her own story, candidly sharing some of the harder parts to talk about including mental health struggles, navigating social cues, abuse and trauma, and more.

You’ll hear Dr. Jen Blanchette ask Cristabelle questions, as today’s interview was originally aired on TBI Therapist podcast: tbitherapist.com


Listen to Cristabelle’s new “Hope Survives” single on all music streaming platforms!
