We hear what their mental health problems feel like to them; their experiences of speaking to friends, family, professionals and the public; and the things that can help them feel better. In these conversations, we cover topics from social media to suicidal thoughts, and we say that whether you sometimes find it difficult to leave the house; you have anxiety, depression, or OCD; or you need to airplane your phone every now and then to stop it becoming addictive - that’s okay.
