Podcasts

Our podcast is a place where we explore ideas around mental health, equality, and social justice. Join Thea Joshi as she talks to people with lived experience of mental health problems, people working in a specific area of mental health, or some of our own team, to discuss how we’re engaged in the fight for equality in mental health.
