Mental health problems are common, so why is talking about them difficult and why do people find it so hard to understand? In a bid to expel the stigma, recognise the demons and allow ourselves to talk openly and ask for help, we invite you to listen, discuss or share.

Lucy Nichol: A Series of Unfortunate Stereotypes – Naming and Shaming Mental Health Stigmas

Lucy Nichol has always been on edge. Whether it’s because of her fear of beards, a general sense that she can catch a disease from anything, or the belief that she’s going to throw up at any given moment, she’s never really felt safe. In A Series of Unfortunate Stereotypes, Lucy explores the different lenses through which she – and others – have viewed her mental health and tackles some of the stereotypes.

Panel Discussion

Overcoming the Stigma and Finding Support

Opening up the discussion around mental health and the challenges of overcoming our demons, we welcome Paula McGuire, author of Must Try Harder: Adventures in Anxiety and Lucy Nichol, author of A Series of Unfortunate Stereotypes – Naming and Shaming Mental Health Stigmas.
