Let’s be honest, parenting is stressful. As soon as you have a child, your life is completely turned upside-down. While you wouldn’t change it for the world, it can certainly all be a bit overwhelming. Mental health issues are common among parents, but often not discussed because of stigma, but this is starting to change.

Today’s guest is a psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, columnist, bestselling author and television commentator specialising in all thing’s mental health. She understands the impact parenting can have on mental health, and is on a mission to help parents cope with juggling life.
