It’s All About You Podcast

We’re joined on the Recovery Devon podcast this time by Max Cohen and Rea Pearson to talk about sexual orientation and gender identity. Are there some particular mental health challenges for different LGBTQ+ communities, and how can organisations like It’s All About You Wellbeing offer tailored help?

Historical perspectives are considered alongside current affairs, and we share ideas and exercises around gender identity.

Max has provided a rich variety of resources to support this podcast below. Thanks to Max and Rea for a fascinating conversation!
