SIM Ep 789 Chops 232: Depressed? Blurt it out, says Maddy Dilley

This week in the Chops, we’re chatting depression, because – as we’re seemingly constantly told – it’s okay to not be okay and it’s good to talk. But what do those soundbites really mean and how helpful are they for people dealing with depression

No stranger to the black dog, Mick got on the Zoom with Maddy Dilley, managing director of The Blurt Foundation, a brilliant social enterprise dedicated to helping those affected by depression and anxiety, to talk stigma, self-stigma, self-care, misconceptions, peer support and how Dougal can be there for Ted.
