It’s almost inevitable nowadays that we will experience work related stress at some point in our careers.
Job insecurity, economic uncertainty. workload, terrible management or unsafe conditions – any or all can have a devastating effect on our mental health.

A two-stop podcast this week, with the intro done stood in a field. A beautiful couple of days in Langdale with friends was just the ticket. Here’s what our view looked like:
This week I reflect on the tragic recent deaths in the public eye, and I take a personal look at an article which made me think about my relationship with medication. No spoilers but it made me really annoyed.
I’m still finding my feet with the podcast and this episode comes across as a bit of a stream of consciousness, but it is intended to open debate with the ultimate aim of talking more.
Lots of links, take a look below to follow them and draw your own conclusions; as I say in this episode these are my opinions and may not be anyone else’s. And I am happy to have my mind changed with further research (y’know, science).
If you need to talk to the Samaritans or Blurt Foundation these are the links.
The original VOX Article by Johann Hari is available Here
Counterpoint articles 1, 2 and 3, with a very important notice about stopping medication Here.
Articles about the meta-analysis of research 1, 2 and 3
In starting this podcast I knew that I would have to manage the episodes around working full time and other commitments.
To that end, Sunday seems the most logical day for me to upload episodes, as I can draft them during the week, meet up with people and have interesting chats over coffee and cake, then splice it all together over the weekend.
I am aiming to release weekly; this may slip to bi-weekly but I will make that judgement call based on my time/energy/spoons etc.
I’m learning every day – I used to work for an ISP so I’m not a total novice but 10+ years of nursing knowledge has overwritten a fair amount of the techy stuff… and in the meantime it’s all shiny and new!
Excited and nervous about Episode 02, it’s a big one for me.
The first episode is up! Listen here.
I decided to leave a few of the ‘Umm’s in this time, editing them all out was proving a chore.
Today I had the pleasure of talking to Jonathan Midwood about his mindful social venture Head to Heart Network. A fascinating chat with a lovely chap.

This is the Thinking Habits Podcast website.
There are a few excellent Mental Health podcasts out there but there’s definitely room for more conversation. Here is Thinking Habits.
It’s going to be part exploration of conditions, social stigma, policy etc and part frank discussion about living with mental illness.
Most importantly though it is going to be humorous, irreverent and relaxed. I want it to be sensitive but at the same time humour (often dark) goes hand in hand. It’ll find it’s own path and we’ll see how it goes.
I am a qualified Mental Health Nurse with a background in Forensic and addiction services. I know a lot of people who have first hand experience of mental health issues as practitioners, patients or (like me) both!
