LIFI 22: How Do We Talk About Mental Health?

23rd September 2022 - 23rd September 2022

Have we now normalised the conversation surrounding mental health or is there still a way to go? In the wake of the pandemic, raising awareness and conversation about mental health, have we now assimilated as a society into being more vocal about our personal struggles, more open and sharing or not? We hear from a range of panelists on why it is important to talk about mental health and what more needs to be done to empower people to have those chats, and how much further do we still have to go, before we can truly reach destigmatization of mental ill health issues. This panel will be hosted by journalist, author and mental health campaigner Bryony Gordon. Joining Bryony on the panel will be; Luke Ambler - former professional rugby player David Harewood MBE - actor and director Sarah Hughes - chief executive, centre for mental health Gail Porter - television presenter and personality
