Mental Health Matters is RadioReverb’s monthly programme focussing on mental health and wellbeing. Our Facebook page can be found at FACEBOOK

The March edition will be broadcast on Sunday 11th March @ 3pm

To mark International Women's Day Counsellor and Dramatherapist, Bruce Guthrie, will be joined by the director of Brighton Women's Centre, Lisa Dando to reflect upon their IWD celebrations at Brighton Dome and the work and guiding ethos of BWC.

We'll also be hearing from Chief Superintendant Lisa Bell from Sussex Police, trans activist & author Juno Dawson, Karen Dobres from the Equality FC campaign run by Lewes Football Club and Charlotte Vincent from Vincent Dance Theatre.

We'll also be playing The Dedication Game Stuart (left), Kit (centre) and new boy Burr (right) and their bumbling host Bruce (tiny in the front).
What songs will these complete strangers choose as musical gifts for each other? What songs will they choose for themselves?

Mental Health Matters is produced by Avonside Television for Radio Reverb - to hear more programmes from Avonside follow the link below:

Each month we’ll also be playing The Dedication Game. Three people who’ve never met before will be choosing music for each other based solely on their answers to our questionnaire.

1. Tell us your name and where you were born

2. What’s your favourite meal that you cook for yourself

3. Something that makes you feel excited…

4. Something that makes you feel fearful

5. And you’re most likely to…

6. And you’re least likey to…

7. Finally – tell us your guiding motto

Based only on these answers we’ll hear the music they’ve chosen for each other. We’ll hear them give and receive their musical gifts and whether they’re just right – or perhaps just not. Crucially we’ll hear them give themselves their dedication, and why they’ve chosen as they have.

If you’d like to play The Dedication Game or want to take part in the programme use the contact form below and we’ll come back to you just as soon as we can
