We talk to Mark Rowland, CEO of the Mental Health Foundation, and Antonis Kousoulis, who leads our programmes work. Mark and Antonis discuss 2019 as being a year of change and how we can look after our mental health when change hits us - be it positive or negative change. 

We also discuss the Mental Health Foundation&aposs birthday year and why a public health and prevention approach is the way forward for mental health.
