New Mental Health News Radio Network Podcast – The Mental Health Book Club

New Mental Health News Radio Network podcast Mental Health Book Club uses literature as a lens through which to explore mental illness and recovery

Psychiatrist and film maker Dr. Parvinder Shergill hosts Mental Health News Radio Network’s new podcast Mental Health Book Club.

In addition to her work within the arena of psychiatry Dr. Shergill writes scripts and makes films about mental health from a realistic yet cinematically engaging perspective. She also uses creative media including writing and drama to support her patients.

The Mental Health Book Club podcast is an extension of this work. It aims to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness and mental health by using the power of narrative to explore these themes.

Dr. Shergill said, “I want people to enjoy the conversation of mental health rather than feeling burdened by it. We should be able to feel better at sharing, and listening to others and realising that mental health is all around us, and that it is okay. I feel also having a doctor such as myself will help people feel more connected with professionals to get help and know there is no boundaries preventing that link we want to make with our patients if they need help”.

In addition to winning an award from The Royal College of Psychiatrists, the podcast was invited to record an episode at the Houses of Parliament.

Mental Health Book Club is available via Mental Health News Radio Network and all other podcasting networks.
