Podcast of the Week: Where Is My Mind? - Niall Breslin & Dr. Mike Ryan

Image: Spotify

On an excellent recent episode of his Where Is My Mind? podcast, Niall Breslin interview Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of WHO's Health Emergency Programme. They cover a range of topics connected to mental health such as the lack of preventative health provision and the pressure of modern society not meeting the needs of people. It is refreshing to hear two giants in their fields speak so openly about the issues in society and in particular addressing abruptly what needs to change.

See you next week!
