Writer, performer and mental health advocate Jordan Stephens will be the guest for the live recording of The Naked Professors podcast, as part of Happiful Magazine's Podfest For Mental Health, on Saturday 30 March at King’s Place in London.
Jordan will join the hosts of The Naked Professors podcast, Ben Bidwell and Matt Johnson, for this special conversation.
Jordan hosts his own podcast The Whole Truth, encouraging good and open conversation about mental health. He has spoken widely about the impact of toxic masculinity, the importance of mindfulness and his own experiences with depression.
Jordan is a lead Ambassador for the YMCA's #IAmHole campaign, an anti-stigma mental health campaign developed in partnership with the NHS and YMCA with the aim of encouraging young people to speak out. He has been deeply involved in initiatives such as Music 4 Mental Health and is a member of the music duo Rizzlekicks.
The Naked Professors
The Naked Professors represent the new breed of masculinity by stripping things back to have deep and vulnerable discussions about what's most important in life and how we actually feel. In their podcast, they go beneath the surface and share how they, and their guests, have dealt with difficult challenges.
