Have we placed too much focus on opinion and experience instead of expertise when we talk about mental health?
That’s the bones of a column by Larissa Nolan in the Sunday Independent, in which she says those who share their own mental health experience are “sacred cows, beyond challenge or critique”.
Is that fair? One of those she talks about in the article is Blindboy Boat Club, author and podcaster who’s been talking about mental health for years.
Blindboy Boat Club joined Kieran on the show to respond to Larissa's comments.
