On this month’s Mental Health Matters (MHM), We have interviews with Brentwood Borough Councillor David Tee who talks about the Mental Health (MH) Challenge and also a personal account from Mental Health survivor, blogger & author Rebecca Lombardo (@BekaLombardo on Twitter)

We also go through “10 Phrases” that people say… are they good or bad?

We also have our regular features: Poetry Corner, Songs on the Month, Mental Health News and a Book Review of former England International cricketer Marcus Trescothick’s “Coming Back to Me” with Scott W.
