Summary

In this World Mental Health Day Audible Sessions Special, nine celebrities discuss their experiences with mental health. We hear what their mental health problems feel like to them; their experiences of speaking to friends, family, professionals and the public; and the things that can help them feel better.   

In these conversations, we cover topics from social media to suicidal thoughts, and we say that whether you sometimes find it difficult to leave the house; you have anxiety, depression, or OCD; or you need to airplane your phone every now and then to stop it becoming addictive - that’s okay.  

Featuring Susan Calman, Clarke Carlisle, Marverine Cole, Bryony Gordon, Matt Haig, Matt Johnson, Katie Piper, Vicky Vox and Simon Webbe.  

This episode was created in partnership with Mind, the mental health charity. If anything in this programme has affected you or you would like to speak to someone about your mental health, please call the Mind Infoline on 0300 123 3393 or visit the Mind website, mind.org.uk.

Life affirming

This was just what i needed to hear. I have experience in most of what they have been through, but listening to them talk about their issues, just reaffirmed every technique and process i use to keep the beast under control. Even if you don't battle the beast but know someone who does, or you do battle in small doses, i could not recommend this more.

Share and care. Encourage and empower.

Thank you. Together we are stronger. I would love to share my story too. I am a ordinary person in this world yet, I believe, I too have something valuable to say. I hope one day my voice can help others in some way. So thank you for sharing so openly. May you all continue your journey of life as well as possible and receive any support you need along the way. Keep sharing. Keep caring.

Enlightening

It’s so refreshing to know that you’re not alone. And that “celebrities” are fallible, we are all in the world struggling with our own demons. Therefor being kind, supportive and a listening ear is important xx

Everyone needs to talk freely.

If someone doesn't have someone that they can talk freely with they should find someone.

37 Minuets of Compassion

As a person who suffers and has loved ones who suffer from mental health complications, I fully enjoyed listening to others explain their views. Hearing other's perspectives on what their experiencing, helps me relate to mental health better, wither that relation is with myself or with what I am witnessing with my loved ones. Thank you for the 37 minuets of compassion, needed and very appreciated :)

So helpful, thank you

Holly Newson and all of the contributors! Just felt great to hear first hand accounts of how to honestly approach mental health topics which have always been taboo. Really great voices, wonderful performance and awesome information,. Highly recommend.

Taking care of our mental health

We all need to take care of our mental health and wellbeing whether we have a mental health problem or not.

Mental wellbeing describes how you are feeling and how well you can cope with day-to-day life. It can change from moment to moment, day to day, month to month or year to year.

Open and Honest

I love how freely everyone talked about their mental health and how it affected them. As someone who has struggled with mental health since childhood, it filled my heart with so much compassion and happiness listening to this book. It shows those who struggle with mental health that we, too, have a voice. Talking about mental health openly can be difficult. Thank you, everyone, who put this together. The more we speak out and help those who struggle, the more we start to change the lives of others as well as our own.
