Stephen Fry; writer, broadcaster and all round genius.


“What a refreshingly original idea, Antonia and Jo. I love the fact that you'll be looking at mental health services in the countries you'll be visiting. They often have a far more holistic approach to dealing with mental health, incorporating not only the Mind, but the Body and Soul too. Good luck! I look forward to your documentary!”.
Trisha Goddard - Journalist, Television presenter and producer


“What a wonderful idea….Mental illnesses are painful and often hidden diseases which afflict millions of people - from depression to schizophrenia. Thank goodness that there are those who want to help and thereby transform the lives of so many suffering in silence and hiding.”
Melvyn Bragg, President of Mind
