Show Notes

Welcome to the Somerset Emotional Wellbeing (SEW) podcast!

In this episode, a discussion of the film “Care As You Are”, our hosts Dr. Peter Bagshaw and Dr. Andrew Tresidder are joined by Stephen Moss, who is (amongst other things) the Director of Reve(a)l Productions and a Producer, and Mary Renouf who is a Screenwriter to discuss how “Care As You Are” came to be made in partnership with local care organisations, how Mary brought her personal experience to the writing process, and what’s next for this exciting project.

The SEW podcast is a free weekly show hosted by Dr. Andrew Tresidder and Dr. Peter Bagshaw. In each episode, the doctors discuss a different topic related to mental and emotional wellbeing and often invite expert guests to join them in conversation. The show is aimed at the people of Somerset and beyond; the advice and guidance provided should apply to anybody who needs it, whenever they need it.
