This Is An Emergency. With Laura Dockrill

Episode 17,   May 28, 2021, 02:07 AM

This week I spoke to the children’s author, illustrator and writer Laura Dockrill. Her book, What Have I Done covers her experience of post-partum psychosis, feeling suicidal and, eventually, getting well. We discuss all of these things in the episode so it carries
a trigger warning: mentions of suicide, psychosis and mental illness.

I also interviewed NHS psychiatrist and mental health campaigner Dr Benjamin Janaway about how someone gets admitted to a psychiatric hospital and what treatment they may receive. You can follow him on Twitter at @drjanaway
