To start a conversation, a dialogue, about opening up on mental health.Nic joins Nigel, sharing his perspectives as a carer, and together they consider the professions they work in. How attitudes have changed and how certain attitudes remain stubbornly persistent.  We hope you enjoy this episode of the Skadi podcast.
