Show Notes

One of the reasons to start the podcast was to examine certain common misunderstandings about mental health, to try to offer some comfort to those who think their situation is hopeless and show them that it is far from that. As such, this is one of the most important episodes. Needless to say, if you find yourself feeling suicide, please, please, please do what we say in the episode and reach out to someone you trust, now!

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.
