Publisher's 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.

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 :)

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

Don’t be afraid to listen, everyone is awesome

I downloaded this a while ago but I wasn’t brave enough to listen to it. Sometimes hearing about these health issues can trigger off anxiety or panic. I’m so glad I gave it a go. I gained everything and lost nothing. Thank you everyone who gave of yourselves to help others. You helped me.
