Can I Have A Word?
Thursday May 6th, 2021 with Bob LeDrew and Hera Mustafa
Musician and advocate Mélanie Brulée on mental health and wellness

It's Mental Health Awareness Week -- a week close to the heart of Cornwall-born singer-songwriter Mélanie Brulée. She's become an outspoken and powerful advocate for mental health awareness, while (at least until COVID) working as a touring musician. Learn more about the loss that inspired her new song "Crier" and her passion for helping people find ways to improve their mental health. CONTENT ADVISORY: This episode contains discussions of suicide. If you are likely to find this difficult, perhaps give it a miss.
