Dr Lucy Maddox on Brexit's psychological toll

Nov 24, 2016, 07:00 AM, London, Greater London, England

With so much uncertainty over this country’s future, a worrying number of reports are emerging on increasing levels of anxiety among Britain’s youth. For this episode, Jen and Tim caught up with Dr Lucy Maddox, a consultant clinical psychologist for the NHS, to try to understand the root causes and what steps parents can take to help those in their care cope. Lucy also reveals her own fears for woefully underfunded mental health services in the UK and examines the seven stages of ‘Brexit grief’ and whether our nation is still in a state of shock, denial or is finally accepting the reality of a life outside the European Union.
