Episode 4 Don’t forget to ask twice

In episode 4, we catch up with John Hetherington from our wellbeing team to chat about mental health and the stigma attached to it. He shares some top tips on how to keep ourselves (and others) in check by asking them how they are doing, not once – but twice. Emma reads her diary entry on how she has coped with bumping shoulders with human beings again and we discuss how the infamous ‘Date Night’ is definitely not dead. Get your notepads ready for some great date ideas.
