04 Shake it off (with Dr. Jess Howitt)

Bethan and Lau talk to Dr Jess about the difference between feeling anxious and anxiety disorder, shaking it off and why going to the doctor to talk about your mental health is just like buying condoms as a teenager. 

If you've been affected by any of the issue in this podcast there are lots of organisations that can help - Mind, the mental health charity (www.mind.org.uk), The Samaritans (www.smaritans.org), Rethink Mental Illness (www.rethink.org/about-us/our-mental-health-advice), Saneline (www.sane.org.uk/what_we_do/support/helpline/) and The Mix (www.themix.org.uk/get-support). You might feel uncertain about asking for help, but as Dr Jess reassured us in this episode, there really is no need to be afraid. 

If you feel like you need help urgently you can contact your GP, call 111 or in an emergency call 999.
