Caspar gets binge thinking mental health with 30-year-old psychologist Vicki Smith. Join them as they talk about the different types of psychologists, therapists and counsellors and where you might look for advice or help. Vicki describes the differences between psychosis, bipolar disorder, mania and schizophrenia, the line between hope and madness, and why people feel shame for seeking mental health services. Vicki is also host of her own podcast, Insane Ramblings.
Listeners who need support with mental health personally or for their family, friends or partners can call Lifeline on 13 11 14 and Beyond Blue on 1300 22 3646, and should call 000 (in Australia) in an emergency. This episode was produced and edited by Nina Roxburgh, and features music by Big Gigantic.
