MHAW '14 The Mental Health Awareness Podcast

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week Simon Nicks from Wire FM's Breakfast Show has put together a special stigma busting 90 minutes of conversation about mental health, with advice on how to help yourself and each other.

It covers everything from dealing with panic attacks and anxiety, to how to get help for eating disorders, schizoaffective disorder and what it's like to live with  bipolar disorder.

You'll hear about #FindingMike from Johnny Benjamin, after a stranger stopped him taking his life on a London bridge, I talk about pro-anorexia and the influence of the media on anorexia as well as Nicky and Lindsey Cree from Xtra Spirit talking about how to help yourself.
