Epic Fail: Clare Wright

Epic Fail: Clare Wright

In her candid speech at our Epic Fail event, Clare Wright explains that hers was not a humorous or whimsical failure. Rather, beneath the bonnet of her happy and successful personal and professional lives, she faced an epic challenge: severe clinical postnatal depression.

She talks about her initial denial of the illness, how she came to recognise her vulnerability, and how accepting it was a crucial turning point that allowed her to recover her mental health.
