IdirisHagi ,

Thank you!

This podcast is great. What a timely podcast about mental health. Thank you Dr Berney and Dr Marshall for all of your work in creating this podcast. And also thank you for the pervious Paedeia education podcast.

PS: I use the Overcast podcast app to listen the show.

SM.cali ,

worth every minute of your listening ears

you gentleman are fantastic.

i’ve never heard such insight and explanations to complex everyday life struggles spoken about so eloquently. you both make it so easy to understand the science behind mental illness and shed light to that to the general public with each episode you guys put out. psychology and mental health is so complex and facts are often watered down with misinformation and bias opinions from many podcast hosts, doctors, professionals, etc. but this podcast is different. worth it... x a million!

a HUGE recommend !!

Reopening Anxiety

I was very disappointed at the podcast because it was more about the vaccinations, current steps, procedures, & protocols of reopening than actual anxiety.
