In commemoration of mental health month this six episode of THE LAST THING I WISHED I SAID podcast addresses beloved family members coping with mental health struggles, raising children, and surviving a quotidian life. Many thanks my guest who was so candid in her conversation based on her devoted love of her late grandmother and mother.
On the sixth episode of THE LAST THING I WISHED I SAID, Linda speaks to Colette Claire who teaches at CSUN in the English, Humanities & Undergraduate Studies departments. In addition, Colette helps run the LAVC Writing Center where she hires and trains tutors. Colette discusses the loss of her beloved grandmother, Carol Redmond, who struggled with mental illness & yet devoted herself to Colette's upbringing with deep love and encouraging intellectual pursuits. Carol died when Colette was only ten years old. She still grieves being prevented from attending her grandmother's funeral.
She has also been a heavy metal music journalist for over a decade. She can be reached at her Colette Claire Metal Journalist blog .
