BBC Radio 4 – 2019
Ruby Wax talks about mental health in her inimitable style, focusing on how we are all frazzled, how we got to be that way and what we can do about it – using comedy, mindfulness and chat with the audience.
There is so much to say about mental health and feeling frazzled and Ruby has the knowledge – a Master’s degree in mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. She also has the experience after years of struggles with mental health. And of course she has the comic gifts to say it in an articulate, funny and entertaining way
In this show, she wants to make us laugh at her and at ourselves, make our lives feel more manageable, and share tools for how to cope.
Another chance to hear a show recorded in February 2018.
Ruby Wax returns to talk about mental health in her inimitable style, using comedy and insight to make us laugh and also think about what it means to be human.
It follows her well-received show for Radio 4 last year.
