Special Podfest For Mental Health Book of Man Episode Released

Editor of The Book of Man Martin Robinson spoke with Andy Man's Club founder Luke Ambler, mental health advocate Phoebe Torrance and TV explorer Aldo Kane for a special Mental Health Awareness Week podcast episode

A special edition podcast from The Book of Man is the fourth episode to be released as part of Happiful and Counselling Directory's Podfest For Mental Health Programme, marking Mental Health Awareness Week.

An honest and real conversation about mental health, speaking out, self care and responding to suicide, was led by The Book of Man Editor Martin Robinson. He was joined by Andy Man's Club founder Luke Ambler, Papyrus ambassador, model and actress Phoebe Torrance and Aldo Kane, world record setting adventurer, explorer and TV presenter.

Starting with the theme of 'self-destruction to self care', each guest spoke about how and why mental health advocacy became important to them and the mental health tools they use to live their lives and support others.

As well as this special episode from The Book of Man, you can now listen to Podfest For Mental Health episodes I am. I have with You, Me and The Big C co-hosts Deborah James and Lauren Mahon, The Naked Professors with Jordan Stephens, and What I Wish I Had Known About Maternal Mental Health.

The final episode in the Podfest For Mental Health programme will be released on Friday 17 May; Happiful Magazine’s I am. I have - The Panel with CEO of Mental Health Foundation Mark Rowland, vlogger Grace Victory, actor and producer April Kelley and journalist Yvette Caster.

All five podcasts in the programme were recorded at Podfest for Mental Health; a day of live recordings in front of an audience at Kings Place in London organised by Happiful Magazine and Counselling Directory.
