Break the Silence, But Not with Stereotyping

We know that talking about our problems with a good friend or a counsellor can work wonders; we know that stereotyping people with mental health problems as violent, incompetent and “not like us” is discriminatory; we know that silence about mental health is worse. Yet we often do all three. This is what led comedian Ian Boldsworth to set up The Mental Podcast. He was nervous about doing it, as you can read here but went ahead anyway, and is glad he did.

Ian used a narrative interview technique to interview people who had mental health issues, including those who had been compulsorily hospitalised, for a series of six podcasts. Dip into these for an insider view on mental health.
