Why is it so hard to talk about our mental health?

I finally got to IRL talk to someone who I’ve admired for bloody ages on Twitter and I’m so happy to report that it lived up to expectations - this week, the guest I have for you is JAMES CONLON . If you haven’t heard of him, he’s a kind and thoughtful mental health advocate who blogs and tweets about real shit. Go follow him on Twitter and get to know him!

So what did we talk about?

Well we covered a lot of topics including:

  • The stigma surrounding mental health

  • Toxic Masculinity

  • Living with chronic illness

  • Trolls & Bullies

And we also mentioned a couple of other things you might want to check out like Hattie Gladwell’s mental health work, the Time to Change #AskTwice campaign and CALM’s website. The best way to find out what we’ve been talking about though is absolutely to get yourself a cup of tea and settle down for a ride around the block with me, James and our resident expert, assistant psychologist, Molly Scott!
