Kate Nash: 'I didn't know what anxiety was'

Kate Nash has said she didn't realise the kind of mental health issues she was having early on in her career.

The Foundations singer told 5 live's Sarah Brett and Nihal Arthanayake 'I was surrounded by a lot of men who didn’t really care about my mental health.' Nash, who rose to fame in her teens, added 'I didn’t know what anxiety was or OCD'.
