In this episode, I’m in Berkshire taking a walk with Tom Cox and discussing his experiences with anxiety. Tom is married to his long-term partner Danny and they have an adopted son. Tom works in digital marketing for a major toy brand but is also a prolific parenting blogger and you can find him on Instagram at @unlikelydad. I’ve known Tom for a little while now but had no idea about his mental health issues. I suppose it just goes to show, you never know what’s going on inside someone else’s head. I was so pleased Tom wanted to open up for Man Talk, I hope you enjoy it…
Man Talk, is my podcast that's helping to tackle men’s mental health and normalise the conversation.
I've battled with mental health issues for most of my adult life, but I'm now in a position where I feel strong enough to use my experiences to create a platform where men can talk openly about how mental health has effected them. Each episode sees me, chat to a range of guests who have experienced depression, anxiety, suicidal episodes, grief, PND and much more. Episodes are recorded on location, in the guests’ homes, the park, or in a local pub, thus setting the tone for a show that enables them to open up and help remove the stigmas and taboos that are associated with men’s mental health.
The show is produced in support of the charity, CALM (the Campaign Against Living Miserably).
