In this final episode of the Just Listen mental health podcast, host Juliette Sivertsen speaks with psychologist Anna Friis and psychiatrist Dr Tony Fernando.
Both Anna and Tony take a compassionate approach towards mental health and medicine. They discuss what self-care is really all about, what it means to be kind to yourself, whether mindfulness is all it’s cracked up to be, and how to be a compassionate friend to someone going through a tough time.
They also challenge stereotypes about mental health and where the gaps are in New Zealand’s mental health system.
