Podcast: My Family, Mental Illness… and Me

The organisation Our Time, which seeks to help young people affected by parental mental health illness, has just launched what sounds like a fantastic new podcast called “My Family, Mental Illness… and Me”:

“At Our Time, we are very proud of this podcast. With it, we want to open up the conversation around parental mental illness. All of the guests who took part have or had a parent with a mental illness, or facing a mental health difficulty. Many have a significant public profile including: Joe Wicks, the nation’s PE teacher; BAFTA-winning screenwriter Kayleigh Llewellyn (In My Skin); comedian, author and actor Grace Campbell; and MP Neil Coyle. The interviews are brilliantly hosted by Dr Pamela Jenkins from the Mental Health Foundation, whose own mother had schizoaffective disorder.”
