One in four people are affected by mental health problems, but what does that look like? 


The Mental Health Podcast is all about breaking the stigma around mental health, and we wouldn't be doing our job if we didn't tell our stories. After all, the best way to break down walls is to get really (really) open. This week Lau will be sharing her story of managing anxiety and depression while looking like you've got it all together.

An accomplished academic, medical student and marathon runner, Laureen doesn't look like she has a mental health problem, but she does, and in this episode we delve into her experiences and understand more about what life is like when it's not so peachy.
