Welcome!

1 in 4 people will be impacted by mental health issues and yet as a society we continue to stigmitise those who are suffering. Talking about mental health should be common place and this podcast is adding to the discussion. We talk about mental health issues that are addressed in books and how well they portray mental illness.
