LEAP UK’s Podcast Presents: Johann Hari, Gail Porter, Hattie Gladwell
Wednesday 21st February 2018
18:45 at Waterstones, London - Tottenham Court Road
Join us for another LEAP UK live Stop and Search podcast recording (part of Scroobius Pip’s Distraction Pieces Network) with author and journalist Johann Hari. Fresh from his success in challenging perceptions with his book Chasing the Scream, Johann has now written about his journey with mental health in Lost Connections: Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression – and the Unexpected Solutions.
Joining the conversation will be television presenter and personality Gail Porter who has been very open about her own experiences with mental health and seeks a more open conversation about the topic, and Metro’s Lifestyle Reporter Hattie Gladwell will also join the panel to discuss her work around the issues of mental health and chronic illness.
Lost Connections is a book from New York Times best seller, Hari, where he presents a radically new way of thinking about depression and anxiety. Endorsed by, amongst others, Hillary Clinton, this new book sees Johann Hari write about his depression which he had suffered with from childhood. Taking anti-depressants when he was a teenager, he was told that his problems were caused by a chemical imbalance in his brain, but are we getting the full story around depression?
