Each person’s experience of mental illness is unique. In each episode of Being Well we hear from somebody who has experienced mental ill health of one kind or another. We join them as they explore their experience, its place in their lives and its impact on the way they have chosen to live. There is a lot to be learnt from each of these very diverse stories about surviving and flourishing in the context of mental illness. Made possible by the eMental Health in Practice Project.
