The Galloping Mind with Naomi Arnold, Ashleigh Young, Wendy Parkins and chair Charlotte Graham-McLay

Dunedin Writers & Readers Festival 2019

In her introduction to Headlands: New Stories of Anxiety, Naomi Arnold notes, "In 2017, one in five New Zealanders sought help for a diagnosed mood or anxiety disorder… but the real figures will be even higher than that, and they're growing." Arnold will join two others who've done their bit to destigmatise mental illness: Ashleigh Young, one of the contributors to Headlands, and Wendy Parkins, whose new memoir Every morning, so far, I'm alive covers her battle with depression, contamination phobia and OCD. They'll talk to journalist Charlotte Graham-McLay about their experiences and the importance of shining a light on mental health.
