The Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival is one of the BIGGEST Arts festivals in the world and MenTalkHealth is there meeting some of the amazing contributors, and hearing their own unique stories and experiences of mental health. In our second special episode join Davey as he meets with Edinburgh based artist, Andrew Henderson, to discuss how his art sculptures speak to his relationship with mental illness. Andrew’s work is part of the brilliant “All, Entire, Whole.” exhibition curated by our guest host, Sean McGugan. ***Trigger Warning*** This episode does talk around the subject of suicide in an important and healthy way. If this is a possible trigger, that’s okay. Join us on the next episode instead.
Davey, a snowboarding, shirt lifting, media worker in his 30s, has spent the last eight years trying to manage his diagnosis of depression and (eventually) anxiety. With ups and many downs along the way, his need to name, shame and share his demons led him to start this podcast to encourage men to talk about their mental health.
