Hannah Hardy-Jones

On the 12th of May Hamish Coleman-Ross and I hosted the NewstalkZB show “The Nutters Club.”

We talked with Hannah Hardy-Jones who was leading a successful career in human resources before the traumatic birth of her first child lead to what was later diagnoses as postpartum bipolar disorder. Seeing a lack of personal development and mental health support for mothers, Hardy-Jones set out to create The Kite Program, the worlds first app designed to support parents with their personal development.

With thanks to NZ on Air.

    Kyle, thank you so much for sharing Hannah’s incredible story! She’s an absolutely wonderful role model to all women who have any form of perinatal mental illness.

    I too suffered from postpartum bipolar disorder. My memoir “Birth of a New Brain—Healing from Postpartum Bipolar Disorder” is the first book to address postpartum bipolar disorder. (Hannah and I have been in touch about our experiences, which is how I learned firsthand how amazing she is!)

    There’s a new review of my book on PsychCentral (see link below, please) and there’s a New Zealand element to my story as well.

    I’ve loved the music of Split Enz, the Finn Brothers, & Crowded House ever since 1982 when I was 13 . I wrote throughout my book about key interactions I had with Neil and Tim Finn as well as with Crowded House. One experience took place when I had postpartum mania. Let’s just say I didn’t make the best impression on Tim Finn at one of his Finn Brothers shows in San Francisco!

    Anyway, if you’d like a free copy of my book for yourself or someone else, I’d be glad to email it to you. You can reach me at dyane@baymoon.com.

    All my best to you & thanks for reading,

    Dyane Harwood

    Please forgive me for this p.s.. I noticed your online treatment program for social anxiety, which is wonderful! I forgot to mention my book discusses my lifelong struggle with anxiety, both general and social anxiety. One chapter is devoted to my addiction to benzodiazepines and how I was able to withdraw from them using Dr. Heather Ashton’s “The Ashton Method.”

    I was honored the bestselling author Matt Samet (“”Death Grip : A Climber’s Escape from Benzo Madness”) endorsed my book.
