Edgar Cassidy comes in to the podcast to talk about his appreciation for comedy and how humour can affect mental health for better or for worse. Looking back at the talented fraternity of comedians who have taken to the stage and performed stand-up....
Dual or multiple diagnoses is one of the more difficult things to deal with when managing a mental health condition. In this episode, we listen to Edgar Cassidy as he discusses how he lives with both a long term mental health condition and long term physical health condition. This episode goes into the trials and tribulations of coming to terms with cerebral palsy as a child, as well as the bullying he faced, before Edgar channelled his experience into a more positive outlook framework that helped him overcome several obstacles. While everyone's experience is unique we are also grateful that this story can be shared, as we come to understand different ways of reaching a manageable level of well-being and social engagement. #CerberalPalsy, #CP, #CopingStrategies, #DualDiagnoses, #mentalhealth, #podcast, #WellBeing
Social Media and the online world have taken a grip on our lives like nothing humankind has experienced before. Avatars, comments, doctored images, hyper-connectivity, notifications and web presence have come to represent the personality and the reality of the individual at large. We have invited guest expert Olivia Mohtady (psychology graduate) to discuss both the merits and detrimental impact of social media on mental health. We also consider the factors behind these effects and how they may be observed.

Our presenters have come across a relatively new term called "Incel" and seek to go down the internet rabbit hole and news articles to find out more about this phrase. Incels are members of an online subculture who define themselves as unable to find a romantic or sexual partner (despite desiring one). This is a broad catch-all meaning. However, we discover why it is a statement that is never too far from contradiction or controversy depending on which article you read. Listen to presenters discoveries.
