A NEW Isle of Wight podcast is tackling the subject of mental health.

Island Minds is co-hosted by Hannah Brewer and Tia Jackson, who offer a range of support and perspectives on the stigma surrounding the subject.

Hannah said: "This is an idea we had been talking about for quite some time. It was only after my own mental health decline in January that the idea started manifesting into a reality.

"I was incredibly lucky to be met with support for my condition from friends, family and colleagues, this is sadly not an experience the majority (of sufferers) share.

"We are hopeful our little podcast will grow and help towards the call to end stigma. Our first episode went down really well with listeners, we received great — in some cases overwhelming — feedback."
