Today marks the start of Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK and this is a special bonus episode.
Stuttering, also known as stammering, is a speech disorder characterized by repetitions, prolongations, or blockages of sounds, syllables, or words, which disrupt the smooth flow of speech. Stuttering can be difficult to manage and many people experience bullying and exclusion from a young age because of this.
Today, we connect with a truly inspiring guest who has overcome stuttering. He has turned his struggle into a transformation and it has changed his life in remarkable ways. Callum’s journey of resilience, determination, and personal growth not only showcases his own strength, but shows others who stutter the possibility of overcoming this challenge and living a fulfilling life.
Callum has a stutter, which is also known as a stammer. Aged 18, he first said his name without stuttering for the first time, and that’s when his life began to turn around. After years of embarrassment, shame, fear, bullying, and struggle, Callum is now training to be a teacher, has set up a support network for university students who stutter, and works to raise awareness of stuttering through social media platforms.
