Beauty from the Heart
Mental health and the beauty of opening up with Bryony Gordon
Welcome back to a new series of Beauty from the Heart! I’m delighted to be back with journalist, author and mental health activist Bryony Gordon. She’s shared so much of her journey with her readers, from mental health challenges or alcohol addiction. And her openness, in turn, encourages other people to share their stories. I feel such a warmth from her because she is proud to simply be herself.
Today we’re talking all things mental health, how beauty can impact self-esteem, and generally reflecting on musings from her latest book, Glorious Rock Bottom. Just a note – there is some swearing in this episode.
