Christmas is almost upon us and, to quote a lyric from the ubiquitous Slade song, ‘everybody’s having fun’. This might, at first glance, appear to be the case . . . But scratch the surface and look a little deeper – beyond the slick television commercials that are, let’s not forget, designed to persuade us...

There’s a girl. She’s always checking her appearance. Her hair is long, blonde and wavy, her eyes big and blue. There can be little question that the girl is beautiful. That she seems to have it all . . . Yet the girl thinks she is ugly. The girl in question is all too real....

He might not be to everyone’s tastes musically, but it can’t be denied that Phil Collins has an honest streak that is admirable.

It’s that time again. Summer term. Exam season. Up and down the UK. Stress City . . . It’s a perennial problem and one that can lead to innumerable issues.

It’s an unfortunate fact, but mental health and stigma go hand in hand. Unkind comments. Uninformed opinions. Prejudice. Judgement. Ignorance. Discrimination. It’s rife. It’s wrong. Those at the sharp end bear the brunt, make no mistake, the anxious, the depressed and the unwell. But the stigma doesn’t start or end there. You see, doctors (and...

Heard the one about the theatre director, the playwright, the poet and the psychiatrist? It sounds a little like the opening line in a convoluted joke. On the contrary, however, the subject matter could not be more serious. It centres on psychosis, a condition that, as all who have experienced it can attest, is nothing...

This is quite a question and one that, at first glance, might appear impossible to answer. Individual. Unique. Everyone is different, after all.
