This week we're talking about how our mental health affects our family and our loved ones. While they're also the people most likely to buoy us up if we're down, they're also the ones who take the brunt of our own mental health.

This episode was recorded at QUAD Derby during the Little Ed Festival.

This time our main topic is anxiety, and all the ways that's affected us and how we learn to deal with it. We’re also testing out a mental health check-in for ourselves at the top of the show, since we're all affected by everything we talk about too! Everyone needs to talk more about mental health and we’re no exception. This podcast is not a substitute for professional counselling.

A podcast for starting an essential conversation about mental health. We’ve all faced mental health problems; we’ve told friends we’re fine and kept it all to ourselves… now it’s payback time. We talk about Matt's experiences taking his show to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018, its subsequent development into a touring production and podcast, as well as what mental health means to us, and for us. This podcast is not a substitute for professional counselling.
