In conversation with Liz Ritchie, Joti Gata-Aura and Polly Gotschi features a series of videos filmed in 2020 discussing topics around vitiligo, body confidence, social media and self-acceptance.
Integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor Liz Ritchie has been a therapist in a secure mental health hospital for 30 years. In 2019, she featured in Little Mix star Jesy Nelson’s BBC Three documentary Odd One Out where Jesy bared all about her experiences with social media trolls. Liz explored how social media fuelled Jesy’s body image struggles.
As a British-Asian presenter, online influencer and founder of Positively Diverse, Joti Gata-Aura has a wealth of experience in talking about social media and mental wellbeing. As someone with vitiligo, Joti knows all too well the struggles that some people with vitiligo face, including issues with body confidence and self-esteem.
Talking about vitiligo is so important to raise awareness, support each other and be open about our mental wellbeing, so each video in the series focuses on a different topic.
