Hello there. My name is Denean Rowe and for as long as I can remember, I've had a voice in the back of my head that has told me that I won't achieve anything, that I shouldn't talk about my problems and that I'm the only one that has this voice. Years later, I realised that this was part of my anxiety and that I was sick of keeping it to myself, so here is where this podcast comes in! Ditch The Small Talk is a weekly podcast where I have conversations with people about mental health. Whether it's how they discovered that something wasn't quite right, what type of treatments have worked for them or how they think society needs to change the way we view mental health. I want to talk about it all. And I would love it if you listened.
