Mental Health - Speak Up Sunderland LIVE #3

This episode of the Speak Up Sunderland podcast carries a trigger warning:  Our guests talk about attempted suicide, depression, panic attacks, and lived mental health experiences. Another bumper episode, recorded at our last Speak Up Sunderland LIVE event at The Peacock in April; in collaboration of Katie Baggott, founder of the 'S.O.S. Sunderland Opinion and Stories' website. This episode features: Claire Coulthard, the founder of peer support group Red Balloons, who shared about the importance of looking after both your mental and physical health, and how the two are entwined. Incredible live poetry from Sunderland-based poets Hester Dowling and Adam O'Wellen.  Both have written gripping poetry from perspectives of poor mental health, and had the room entranced. --- --- --- Speak Up Sunderland is proudly made in Sunderland! Our hosts are Betty Ball and Stevie B, with music by Timecrawler 82, and our producer is Jay Sykes.
