Heads Up is a series of 10 half hour radio programmes on student mental health. It started during Mental Health Week on October 7th 2015, and ran every Wednesday at 2pm until December 9th 2015 on Flirt FM 101.3.
We spoke to a wide range of counselors, researchers, students, artists and performers about issues that crop up regularly for young people – settling into college, understanding the impact of alcohol on your mind, body, emotions and overall mental health, dealing with anger and conflict, sex, intimacy and pornography, overcoming social anxiety. Each show will ended with an artist performing a song or reading a poem and discussing their own mental well-being.
