Health Talk Online has a number of informative areas relating to physical and mental health. It has videos, audio recordings and transcripts of interviews with people who have experienced a particular mental health problem or treatment. The mental health topics are listed below (more topics added regularly). They aim to represent the breadth of experience and help people to make informed decisions about their care – so there are positive and negative experiences represented.
