In the forty-fifth episode of the Just Checking In Podcast we spoke to mental health advocate and Vent Champion, Sam Thomas.
Sam discussed his experiences of bulimia, depression, alcohol addiction and his diagnosis of emotionally unstable personality disorder.
We also talked about the many years he has been tirelessly advocating for mental health awareness and male eating disorders, his coming out story as a gay man, exercise and of course, a mental health chat!
As always, #itsokaytovent
