My Interview with 'Needs More Nuance' @Netil Radio

I had a great time chatting with 'Needs More Nuance' during their monthly show at Neil Radio back in February. I spoke with Maciek from the show about borderline personality disorder, prejudice and discrimination relating to this diagnosis, the challenges of accessing help, mental health services in general and COVID-19.

I wasn't as articulate as I wanted to be because I couldn't remember the word 'misogynistic' when I needed to use it (I was a bit tired!). Hope you enjoy the show if you choose to listen and please let me know your thoughts or questions if you have any.

If you're interested in locating some of the studies I mentioned during the interview, or reading more about some of the topics discussed, I recommend checking out these links below:
