It’s hard to know how to look after your mental health at a time like this. But what happens if that’s something you were already struggling with, before the pandemic hit? That’s a question Graham Panther has been asking himself a lot lately. Graham is a mental health advocate and consultant in Australia’s mental health sector. He’s also, in his own words, the ‘anxious type’.  

Over the past few months, Graham’s been documenting his response to the unfolding global events of 2020. He’s been keeping in contact with the other anxious types in his life and comparing notes on how they’re handling the unique challenges this year has brought for those of us who struggle with our mental health at the best of times.

All in the Mind

Lynne Malcolm produced & presented this podcast series via, Australian Broadcasting Corporation Radio

All in the Mind is RN’s exploration of all things mental—a program about the mind, brain and behaviour, and the endlessly fascinating interactions between them. From dreaming to depression, memory to imagination, psychotherapy to psychopathy, emotion to obsession, All in the Mind explores the human condition through the mind’s eye. While many aspects of our minds remain seductively mysterious, new light is being shed on the way we think and the way we relate to each other all the time. All in the Mind brings together a diverse range of ideas and human experiences through the voices of great thinkers and powerful personal stories.
