Our member Lina Mookerjee has spoken about her experience of being involved in a BBC Radio 4 panel discussion on the role of artificial intelligence in tackling loneliness.
Lina joined host Sangita Myska and others in the episode of Positive Thinking, which explored whether your own avatar was the solution to loneliness.
Lina said: “The fact that a therapist was included in the discussion was brilliant.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the whole broadcasting experience.”
Meanwhile, our new Therapy talks film has also been featured in the media – with the help of members Diane Youdale, Lara Waycot and Anthony Davis.
The film aims to help people understand what therapy is, address some of the myths that surround it and explain how to find a registered therapist.
It sees Diane, Anthony and Lara discussing what therapy involves and what people can expect from it.
Diane was featured in the Sun, Daily Mirror and Daily Star, promoting the campaign as well as talking about the topical issue of mental health considerations of reality TV shows.
Lara was featured in the Mail online talking about how discussions of mental health in the TV show Love Island help to break down barriers and stigmas. Her comments on normalising mental health also appeared in the Daily Mirror.
And Anthony wrote a thought leadership column for Diversity Q with advice on how to find the right therapist.
