Today is Young carers day, and I wanted to give all young carers a big shout out. They do such an amazing job looking after their families, and they need to be supported as much as possible.

If you are a young carer, or you are a parent of a young carer, please ensure you are all getting the help you need. Many charities are there to offer support and advice.

Podcast Ep 45 – Mental Health Problems Linked to Early Risers


An article in The Guardian today mentions a study at the  University of Exeter. This study suggests those who get up early are less likely to suffer mental health problems. People who stay up later in the evening, but have to get up early in the morning are also more likely to suffer from mental health problems such as schizophrenia.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you find it easy to get up early? Is your mental health affected by late nights?

Please DM me on my Twitter with your thoughts.


Podcast Ep 43 – I Think Our Rabbit is Unhappy

Pet therapy is growing and for good reason. It provides a lot of emotional and physical support to people suffering from mental health problems. 

However, you don’t always realise when one of your pets is unhappy. My wife thought that one of our rabbits was unhappy with her new condo, so we decided to refurbish it. 

Podcast Ep 41 – Bullying is Not OK

Today, I talk about bullying, following an article on The Mighty about  10-year-old Seven Bridges who died by suicide after being bullied.

Bullying is never OK, and I discuss some of the things you can do to get support and help if you are the victim of bullying.

There are also many charities such as Young Minds, that offer advice and support.

If you are being bullied, please speak to someone.

Podcast Ep 40 – Mental Health on the Agenda at Davos

Today, I talk about mental health because it’s on the agenda at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

It is great to see mental health issues being raised by people such as Prince William. However, it is also vital that this doesn’t get drowned out by other topics on the agenda.

Let’s work together to get mental health trending at Davos on social media.

Podcast Ep 38 – For Many Blue Monday is Not Just One Day

Today is supposed to be Blue Monday, when statistically, most people feel low mood and depression. 

On the show today, I talk about how for many people, Blue Monday isn’t just one day a year. I also offer some tips on how you can help to raise your mood, whatever day it is. 

If you are feeling low, have depression, or anxiety, try to talk to someone who you trust, or speak to someone from one of the many charities that can help you.
