1. It’s OK not to be OK: on the importance of mental wellbeing.
Play • 34 min

With professor Gwendolyn Portzky. In this episode, Gwendolyn Portzky and host David Chan attempt to break the taboo about mental health. The interaction between thoughts, emotions and behaviour, as well as common signals of mental difficulties are discussed. The biggest taboo would be having suicidal thoughts or tendencies. Approximately 1 out of 10 people experience suicidal thoughts at some point in their life, so it is not an uncommon phenomenon. Gwendolyn stresses the importance of talking about it and also gives tips to start a conversation. Steven Laureys testifies about the way he takes care of his mental wellbeing via mindfulness. As a bonus, there is a small meditation exercise guided by Steven himself at the end of the episode.
