Are You Mental? is a podcast about mental health.


There’s a lot more talk about mental health these days – which is great - but so many of us are a little unclear on what each mental health struggle is, what might cause them and what they’re like to live with. What’s happening in the brain when we’re anxious? When someone’s depressed, what are they actually experiencing? Why would an addict keep going back to the very thing that’s ruining their life? This podcast explores these questions and more.


Each episode is about a different mental health struggle. The host, Mick Andrews, speaks to two people who have lived the struggle and an expert who sheds light on what’s going on behind the scenes.

Are you Mental? Thoughtful and interesting podcast

Excellent in its ability to deal with serious topics with compassion and a lightness of touch, Are You Mental? carefully explores the complexity of mental ill health from a personal and professional perspective.

CoromandelGirl ,

A balanced, informative, easy listen

Great conversations about mental health, in a relaxed tone, while taking the subject seriously. Hearing the lived experiences from the interviewees allows the listener to relate, and/or learn from, plus the clinical experts insights are key to increased understanding. This podcast will help to normalise conversations about mental health, because we are all a bit mental.

Honest, thorough, balanced, curious

Beautifully honest conversations born out of curiosity by the interviewer around mental health, balanced between respectful and casual talks with people who do/have struggled with mental illness, and the professional input of a psychologist. Really enjoying this!
