GMB: Hussain Manawer on the importance of discussing mental health
Fresh from his sold-out headline gig at London’s Scala, Hussain spoke on Good Morning Britain to discuss the stigma around mental health and bereavement. Hussain’s interview touched on his unprecedented success as a spoken-word poet and the loss of his mother acting as a turning point and his motivation to channel his emotions in continuing his work. Hussain also discussed the role of social media and how people filter themselves to show all of their highpoints but none of their lows, and how he wants to change this narrative and show the realities of living and dealing with mental health.
