In today's episode, I am joined by Johann Hari. Johann is the author of two New York Times best-selling books. His first, ‘Chasing the Scream: the First and Last Days of the War on Drugs’, is currently being adapted into a major Hollywood film by Oscar-winning director Lee Daniels, and into a non-fiction documentary series. His most recent book, ‘Lost Connections: Uncovering The Real Causes of Depression – and the Unexpected Solutions’ is being translated into 28 languages and has been praised by a very broad range of people, from Oprah to Hillary Clinton to Tucker Carlson, from Elton John to Naomi Klein to Glenn Greenwald. It was described by the British Journal of General Practice as “one of the most important texts of recent years”, and shortlisted for an award by the British Medical Association.


We dive into the following topics…

- Johann’s profound work with depression and addiction research

- The influence of our environment on our mental health and functioning

- How we as a society can move towards a place of improved mental health

- Stepping away from your ego when pursuing happiness

- Sitting in the discomfort of pain to work towards acceptance and understanding

- So much more!
