Em Rusciano Radio Show Shines A Light On Mental Health

If yourself or anyone you know has ever been troubled by mental health issues great and small, this incredibly honest and raw catchup is worth listening to.

This weekend The Em Rusciano Radio Show dedicated the entire program to something incredibly important - mental health issues, on the eve of Mental Health Week next month.

Joined by Dr Travis Kemp, a leading psychologist who brings an accessible approach to understanding mental health and illness together they shared practical ways to breakdown stigmas to better understand the condition. Em was also joined by Mark Pacitti from Dancing with the Black Dog, an organisation he started by sharing his own experiences in a quest to eradicate the shame and guilt felt by anxiety and depression sufferers across the world.

Em also caught up with a parent she discovered via social media who shared her brave story.

Em says “I wanted to do a mental health episode of my radio show because I think it’s important to continue having open, honest and robust conversations around mental health, to shine light on it and to reassure anyone suffering from mental illness that they are not alone." 

Mental Health Week runs from Sunday 9 October and World Mental Health Day is Monday 10 October.
