Lively Minds, the UK Mental Health Podcast

Ellie Page & Will Sadler

Led by people with lived experience, Lively Minds is a fortnightly UK-based podcast about mental health challenges that go beyond the ebb and flow of the everyday.With a new episode landing every other Wednesday at 6am UK time, hosts: Ellie Page and Will Sadler present a show that is less about how we deal with our mental health problems, and more about how we understand them in the first place.In our first season, we will be talking with Clinical Psychologist Karen Lowinger about High Functioning Mental Health problems, therapist and fellow podcaster Stuart Ralph about one of the most misunderstood of all mental health conditions: OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Professor William Tov about the definition of 'happiness', Jake Dunn about men’s mental health groups and the responsibility of communities to look after one another’s mental wellbeing, Dolly Sen about whether ‘mental illness’ even exists and Rabbi Robyn Ashworth-Steen about how mental health intersects with spirituality and gender.Will and Ellie speak about mental health entirely from their lived experiences. This podcast does not constitute medical or therapeutic advice and is not a replacement for seeking professional help.To find out more about our show and for signposting to mental health support visit
