Listener Week: How creative things like nail art can help overcome anxiety

The final link in the Listener Week Chain, a spotlight on Huntington's Disease, coping with the school holidays on a low income, and the award-winning PMS Garden.

The last link in our Listener Week "Chain," Hannah Daisy, chosen by the musician Catherine Anne Davies, who was inspired by her work in mental health and her creativity in addressing anxiety. Jen, Cath and Angela, The Hayes Sisters - a musical trio from Manchester - talk about making time for music alongside their full time careers and families. Susan Fletcher highlights Huntington's disease and the impact it's had on her and her family's life alongside Consultant neurologist and Huntington's disease researcher Ed Wild. Val Barron tells us why school holidays can be stressful for some families on low incomes. She's a development worker for Communities Together Durham and joins Jenni alongside Sara Brysons a policy advisor at Children North East to look at what help's available. Plus the work of Emma Bannister and her award winning PMS Garden.
