Part 2 in a 2 part series – If you or anyone you love needs help, call Lifeline on 13 11 14

This week, our hosts, Toby, Bridget and Laura chat to Carren Smith, the Founding Director of Spirit Hive and Producer of the Speak Up and Engage Podcast show about depression, anxiety and suicide.

Is depression really depression or is it just being a bit sad? How do we know the difference and how can we help? What is anxiety, what is melancholy and what is clinical depression?

Who is affected, why and what can we do about it in today’s society?

With the greatest at-risk age being 14-44 it’s time we open the conversation and take away the stigma of mental illness. It’s time to talk about how we keep ourselves well and what to do when life gets on top of us!! There are answers!!
