Leon Fernandes talks with Meg, a clinical psychologist who reveals how stigma and shame inhibit members of her profession from discussing and seeking treatment for their own mental health issues.

Meg’s perspective is shaped by having faced mental health trauma and the uncomfortable reactions exhibited when communicating her experiences to colleagues.

Leon, who has for a long time been in therapy with Meg, talks about the comfort that he feels from knowing that his therapist truly understands what it’s like to walk in his shoes.
