I am. I have

I am. I have

By Happiful - Mental Health
We all have mental health, and some of us will experience or live with mental illness – but that doesn’t define who we are.

We talk with some great people, finding out about who they are and the passions that shape their lives, as well as their responses to their own mental health.

This podcast is about the power of talking and the benefit of presenting our whole self to the world.
