Dr. Caroline Leaf is a Neuroscientist, mental health & mind expert, best selling author and host of the popular podcast Cleaning Up The Mental Mess. 

In this episode we cover: 

  • The difference between mind and brain. 

  • How depression and anxiety are not things. 

  • Labelling with mental conditions. 

  • How feeling low is totally normal. 

  • Why positive thinking isn't the answer. 

  • Geodesic Information Processing theory. 

  • Childhood mental wellbeing and the rise of childhood anxiety/depression. 

  • Her new book Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess. 

Dr. Leaf has a natural ability to make light of mental heath and help us to see it simply and manageable and not a label.
