Intimate conversations about getting unwell - and getting better. From household names to nurses on the frontline. Because mental health deserves to be talked about.

    Winning the Booker Prize is a serious coup for any writer, but for author Douglas Stuart the achievement is personal as well as professional: successfully channeling childhood trauma into art. The result is his debut novel, Shuggie Bain, which follows the childhood of a young boy, Shuggie, and his alcoholic mother, Agnes, and was loosely based on Douglas' own life growing up in Glasgow. Douglas joins Bryony from his home in New York to discuss why representation drives his desire to write, and to explain why sometimes just getting by is the bravest thing you can do. Plus he gives listeners a cheeky glimpse into the subject of his next book.

    Charlie Mackesy

    In a sea of beauty hacks, home inspo and brunch snaps, Bryony Gordon's first guest of this new series of Mad World might seem an unlikely Instagram star. But artist Charlie Mackesy’s poignant and heartfelt illustrations have taken the platform by storm - and have earned him over a million followers.

    His debut book, The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse, is billed as a vehicle for ‘hope in uncertain times’, and after a year of true uncertainty, he tells The Telegraph's Bryony Gordon that giving that glimmer of hope to his readers is worth more than any plaudits.

    Plus Charlie talks about how he’s struggling to feel connected to others, why he sees drawing as a form of therapy, and how grief for a lost friend reared its head in an unusual form as a teenager. And if the conversation doesn't leave you feeling just that little bit calmer, the soothing sounds of nature outside Charlie's barn certainly will.

    Jane Gordon is a celebrated journalist and author, and she's also... Bryony's mum. 

    She talks to Bryony about surviving lockdown on her own, why life drawing keeps her feeling young and the importance of making time to call your loved ones. And in proof that all parents are as embarrassing as each other, she manages to fit in a fair bit of that too.

    Getting to the end of some days in lockdown can feel like an Olympic effort, even for gold medallist Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill. She tells Bryony why the lockdown could help more people realise that even the smallest forms of exercise still count, why it's okay to live in lycra, and how even she struggles to get out of bed sometimes. 




    Jessica's fitness app, @wearejennis, also posts short workouts on their Instagram page.

    Therapist Donna Lancaster helps people come to terms with loss. She tells Bryony why it's okay to be mourning your old way of life and why she's running grief workshops to help people cope. Donna shares some of those tips with us, but says there's one battle she's yet to conquer - not eating a packet of Rolos in one sitting.

Essential listening

I’m so pleased I stumbled upon this at a time when I’m questioning the robustness of my own mental health. This podcast can be of help to everyone, to those have slight doubts and worries about their MH to those who are struggling or evening feeling hopeless. This well-produced, insightful podcast has a variety of guests which give discerning advice from practical everyday tips to science-backed facts. It’s wonderful that details of where immediately, as well as general advice about where to get help. I’m so glad the conversation about mental health is opening up and more support is becoming available. There’s still a long way to long, but awareness is a start. Thank you Bryony for being part of the solution.

So helpful !

Thank you for this brilliant, clever, honest and encouraging podcast. It means a lot for someone like me who also suffers from depression to hear different thoughts and encouraging stories from other people dealing with these issues. Can't wait for the next season.

A very good start

A very good opening Podcast. I think the Brits can be very proud of Prince Harry with his Mission and Commitment. Je shows the right mixture of talking about own involvment and understanding of social topics and being very relaxed at the same time. This makes him very credible.
