Why are celebrities now choosing to talk openly about their mental health?

Is it because social media gives us more access to all aspects of their day-to-day lives? Or is stigma decreasing? (a transcript of this programme can be found in the Related Links on this page. Scroll down to find it)

To mull it over, we are joined by blogger Seaneen Molloy-Vaughan and social enterprise director Mark Brown. They have lived-experience of mental health struggles and can empathise with celebrities, like Zayn Malik, who has had to cancel shows due to anxiety.

With Damon Rose, Beth Rose and Emma Tracey.
