Podcast series Talking It Over with Support in Mind Scotland is back for this year’s festival. Hosts Nicole Bell and Iain Mitchell present more fun and fascinating conversations inspired by the festival programme and issues relating to mental health.

In the first episode, they speak to the Mental Health Foundation’s Arts Lead Andrew Eaton-Lewis about the theatre programme, before having a discussion about Mental and how it creates an engaging and moving piece of theatre about bipolar disorder, using music, anecdotes and medical notes.

Support in Mind Scotland seek to support and empower all those affected by mental illness, including family members, carers and supporters. To find out more, visit their website.
