His new book ‘You Will Get Through This Night’ a practical, personal mental health guide - is out now. We are always talking about how to stay healthy on this podcast. With May being Mental Health Awareness Month, there is no better time to talk to Daniel intimately about his experiences, being challenged by his mental health. Daniel talks to us about his struggles coming to terms with his sexuality, and how that effected his mental health. What you will come away from this episode with is a new perspective on what mental health is. We always consider our physical health, and what we can do to improve this part of our being, but unless we all accept that we need to check in with ourselves and consider our mental health as well, we can't fully be our best selves. Checkout his new book, out now - “You Will Get Through This Night”.
