Ep 183: Jay's journey for World AIDS Day 2020

Dec 07, 2020, 06:00 AM

What an eye-opener we have for you in this week's Mental Health Monday.

Mick meets Jay Hawkridge, who was diagnosed with HIV just over a year ago. The science around HIV has moved on so much that the physical impact of the virus can be negligible once medication is taken regularly, but the mental health impact differs in everyone.

Jay sets out how a PDF on LinkedIn started his journey of opening up about the virus, and his honesty about his experience so far is remarkable.

There are various organisations that offer information, help and support for anyone with questions about HIV.

Particular thanks to National AIDS Trust for their guidance in helping Mick cover World AIDS Day for Bauer Radio
