This week we are joined by the lovely Fiona Thomas who wrote a book all about how social media influenced her mental health journey. We discuss the pitfalls of comparing yourselves to others online, how real our online selves really are and whether social media is bringing us closer together or just making us feel isolated when we’re at our worst.
Here we go! Mental is the brain-child of Bobby Temps, who lives and thrives while managing his own mental health. Every Thursday we delve into a factor or condition that influences the mind and how to better manage it.
