Podcast 22 Freedom from Depression
April 5, 2020

Andrew Bridgewater knows all about depression. He suffered a severe bout of depression and burn-out when he was in his mid forties. It left him in a psychiatric hospital for 5 weeks.

At the time of his depression he was a qualified psychologist which baffled him. How could someone who had studied the mind and who knew so much about mental illness end up with depression?

He’s now fully recovered and supporting others as an author, speaker and stress relief coach.

    I liked Andrew’s remarks on mental illness and mental health. I hear the phrase mental illness a lot in my work in teaching support whereas I like to say mental health, well-being and resilience with the emphasis on well-being and resilience.
