Amazing insights

Wayne’s chats with people from various spheres is incredibly thought provoking. He is making a real difference in removing the stigma that exists in society regarding mental illness. Some of the interviews are raw and confronting but they all have a powerful lesson. These podcasts will change lives and may even save some. Bravo Wayne. Thanks for your passion!
