Friday, 29 November
Are you alright? How is your mental health?
Have you suffered from mental illness?
How can you prepare your children to understand mental illness and emotional awareness?

They look at their desperate childhood examples, and how their different journeys affects their well-being and approach to mental illness. Nadia and Mark compare their failings and worries in order to piece together the best strategy to raise emotionally healthy kids, ready for the pressures of the modern adult world.
And the pair take questions and suggestions from listeners on their experiences in parenting roles.
