Conversations with Colin: Exploring the state of mental health

Part 1: The impact of the mental health crisis

Professor Colin Espie wears many hats: Co-Founder of Big Health, Oxford University Professor of Sleep Medicine, and world-renowned clinical psychologist. With over 40 years of experience and upwards of 300 published clinical papers, Professor Espie’s superpower is taking complex mental health topics and distilling them in an engaging, empathetic storytelling-like style that anyone can understand. As we continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, mental health is more complex than ever. In the Conversations with Colin series, the Professor will share his perspective on how the mental health crisis impacts us both individually and globally, and how we can take steps towards access to first-line mental health treatments for all.

In the first part of the series, Professor Colin Espie speaks with executive producer and host of WTF Health Jessica DaMassa, to discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened an already mounting mental health crisis and the steps we can take toward collective healing through evidence-based approaches.
