Note that this podcast is intended just as a guide to show you how to get out of a creative funk, but if you have prolonged sadness, anxiety or feel like this mood is affecting your life in any significant way: please please do ask for professional help.

International suicide prevention hotlines

Depression support groups (UK)

Depression support groups (USA)

CBT Therapists (UK)
