Oliver Turnbull and Dr. Paul Keedwell
Taking about bipolar depression and the great Stephen Fry
Show Notes

In this episode we look at Bipolar depression. What it is, how it presents and what can be done about it. We also introduce the idea of a "Depressive Hero of the Week" - this week Paul is using the example of the great Stephen Fry, a comedic hero of us both, but a man who has had and continues to have struggles with his mental health.

This is "Why the long face?" in which we lift the lid on depression in a sometimes lighthearted and always non-judgemental way.

It is a conversation between two old friends, usually over a drink or two.

Paul has been a psychiatrist for 20 years and has done years of research into mood disorders and Oliver is a business consultant who has dealt with a lot of depression and its consequences in the workplace.

Cheers!
