Mental As Anything is a new podcast series hosted by Radio Hauraki Day Show host Angelina Grey, inspired by the fact that global pandemic has seen a 25% increase in anxiety and depression worldwide.
Join her as she chats to Great New Zealanders who have come up against their own mental health issues and come out the other side. Angelina delves deep into their personal battles, how they look after their mental health, where they find the small joys and personal victories and how we as kiwis can keep the conversation going to keep helping each other, one Great New Zealander at a time.
