Excellent series of mental health introductions
Danny has managed to get a series of serious academics to sit down and record fascinating and enlightening introductions to various aspects of mental health problems. They cover the basics in a very helpful way, and because the interviewees are real experts, they are never boring or obvious. Thoroughly recommended as a series of introductions.
Everyone needs to listen to this
I've just finished listening to Ep.9, which was about procrastination and its links to mental health. It was thoroughly entertaining in that it brought a level of insight and understanding I haven't achieved before. We all procrastinate, but understanding why we do is pivotal to using the tools/methods Tim and Danny talk about to accept it, accommodate it and overcome it.
Another excellent podcast from MOWE - so honest, engaging and down to earth...and effective. I didn't procrastinate about writing this review, I took a series of tiny steps and now it's done.
Must listen podcast
Funny, engaging and educational. This podcast covers a vast array of mental health issues. Many important topics are covered- I even contacted Danny and requested a topic I was struggling with and had not been covered and he definitely delivered. Brilliantly disseminated information for non-experts but still evidence based.
