Brent Williams on Recovering From Depression
Hi Eric, I enjoyed this podcast however there is an organisation in Australia that is called Beyond Blue and has been running for 20 years. It is a household name in Australia and often a first point of call for anyone suffering depression and anxiety and other mental health issues. It is a professional help line as well as running courses for people who are suffering mental health problems or want to help people.
I always enjoy your podcasts and the honest and down to earth way you conduct your interviews. Thanks so much
