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.

Enjoyed Listening to It

Excellent listen. Mental Health is extremely important and it's great to have some conscious focus on it.

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 :)

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.

Brief and Concise

The narration was clear and the flow of the story was brief and concise.
I like how they were straightforward and descriptive with their answers. The interviewer asked the right questions. Plus, the experiences shared on this audiobook surely are relatable with most people that have mental health issues.
I like the insights shared here. Made me feel quite satisfied.

Two ears, one mouth. Shut up & listen

I think it's fantastic to have heard honest testimonials of experience and trial. As a woman, with multiple mental health issues, l can only hope that the conversation gets normalized and discussed with the ease of how an arm was broken

great book for family to introduce topic

Truth shared is Real, resonates with all I've observed in family and in life. Now easy to understand what one goes through.
