Podcast cover

Bethan and Lau talk to Dr Jess about the difference between feeling anxious and anxiety disorder, shaking it off and why going to the doctor to talk about your mental health is just like buying condoms as a teenager. 

If you've been affected by any of the issue in this podcast there are lots of organisations that can help - Mind, the mental health charity (www.mind.org.uk), The Samaritans (www.smaritans.org), Rethink Mental Illness (www.rethink.org/about-us/our-mental-health-advice), Saneline (www.sane.org.uk/what_we_do/support/helpline/) and The Mix (www.themix.org.uk/get-support). You might feel uncertain about asking for help, but as Dr Jess reassured us in this episode, there really is no need to be afraid. 

If you feel like you need help urgently you can contact your GP, call 111 or in an emergency call 999.

Rank #3: 02 Not so peachy

Podcast cover
Read more

One in four people are affected by mental health problems, but what does that look like? 

Exactly.

The Mental Health Podcast is all about breaking the stigma around mental health, and we wouldn't be doing our job if we didn't tell our stories. After all, the best way to break down walls is to get really (really) open. This week Lau will be sharing her story of managing anxiety and depression while looking like you've got it all together.

An accomplished academic, medical student and marathon runner, Laureen doesn't look like she has a mental health problem, but she does, and in this episode we delve into her experiences and understand more about what life is like when it's not so peachy.
