Just Listen is a seven-part mental health podcast series, exploring how to support a person in serious and ongoing mental distress.

Six New Zealanders and their support people share their mental health journey and challenges with journalist and host Juliette Sivertsen, with the final episode featuring an expert panel to discuss kindness, boundaries, mindfulness and self-care.

These candid conversations aim to get people comfortable talking about mental health, to share stories of people living with a mental illness, and to discuss some of the helpful and not-so-helpful things some of us do and say when trying to help a person in distress.

Together, we can work to better support people in our communities, and learn to just listen. Funded by the Mental Health Foundation of NZ, Like Minds Like Mine, supported by NZME.
