Retaining the Passion: Mental Health Matters.

Clare and Craig catch up and discuss their very personal reasons for choosing "Mental Health Matters". And why they felt it was important to address nurses' and healthcare practitioners' lived experiences of mental health issues and challenging professional and societal stigma.

They are humbled and privileged to have three fantastic guests join them to discuss their experiences. First, they speak to Abby Martin, a registered early-career mental health nurse who works in schools with young people. Then, Sally-Anne Wherry, Senior Lecturer in Nursing at the University of Gloucestershire and Parkinson's nurse specialist. Lastly, but by no means least, Nichole McIntosh, London Regional Head of Nursing and Midwifery for Health Education England.

Thank you so much to all three for feeling safe enough to be candid, open and honest with us. We hope you can learn from and resonate with their lived experiences and advice as much as Clare and Craig.
