Dr David Purves on the BBC
Dr David Purves (CBT therapist) was interviewed by Anne Diamond on BBC radio.
I recently launched the Panic Pit Stop App. She was very interested in how the app could help people to recover from Panic, Worry and Anxiety.
Also in the news is the sad fact that common mental health problems in the UK are getting worse not better. The National Psychiatric Morbidity Survey revealed another increase since the last survey in 2007. It is for this reason I promote my Active Self Help programs. As Mulder and Skully (from the X files) used to say. The truth is out there. Well it may be but having it listened to and acted upon is very hard.
