One Comment on “Risk, risk taking and connecting people”

  1. Really interesting and invigorating podcast. I hope too that we can do more work around risk so that health care professionals feel more comfortable helping service users to forge more new social connections. You know, I remember being in hospital one time, and the manager of Assessment Ward said the most profound thing to me: “My son is 18 years old. I always think what it would be like for him if he developed mental health problems and came in to hospital. I try to treat all of the patients the same way I hope my son would be treated”. This to me is true compassion 🙂
