‘The Power of Small’: this year’s Time To Talk Day theme

As we round up Season 1 and embark on Season 2 of The Invisible Cabaret Podcast, we thought it was time to push the boat out and try something new… Thank you to everyone who joined us for our first ever LIVE podcast recording, which took place on our Instagram! What better way to celebrate Time To Talk Day than by having a good old chat about mental health? This year’s theme was ‘The Power of Small’, which Ferrero Rochelle and Rosie Verbose enjoyed exploring alongside interjections from our lovely Insta-audience. 

⚠️ CW: anxiety, depression, bereavement by su*cide at 14.58 – 15.55 (general chat about grief continues to around 17 mins)
