Guests highlight physical and mental health problems so many are facing

Paul Golder writes for the Brentwood Gazette

Our popular morning presenter Michelle Ward was joined by writer Dan Jeffries last week to talk about Acromegaly – an extremely rare pituitary disorder.

Dan’s memoir – Me, Myself and Eye – is not only very insightful but also a hilarious read. He writes about both Acromegaly and Whyburn-Mason Syndrome and what it’s like living with one of the world’s rarest medical conditions – and then finding out you have another one.

Like Dan, Michelle is also in remission from the condition and was able to add understanding to the description of the problems that sufferers have to face.

You can hear the interview again on phoenixfm.com and you can read more about Dan’s book at memyselfandeye.co.uk.

Another guest who came in last week was Tracy Richardson from Amazing Me.

Mental health problems affect about 1 in 10 children and young peopl and can includ depression, anxiety and conduct disorder.

However 7 out of 10 of children and young people who experience a mental health problem have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.

We were pleased to welcome in Tracy to talk about her new initiative to tackle mental health problems in children, which is starting to gain momentum locally.

Amazing Me is designed to provide primary schools with a programme packed full of accessible and engaging materials to build good mental health and wellbeing.

Tracy spoke to our lunchtime presenter Bob Simpson and the interview can be heard again at phoenixfm.com.

* Guests coming up on air in the next week include Kevin Richards and Barry Hester talking about their new production at Brentwood Theatre, and Anita McCarthy from Saint Francis Hospice chatting about their latest events and fundraising.

* There will also be live music in the studio from Dan Olsen, Koray Aykal, Past Kings and Spudd Cannon.
