What brings you joy? What gets in the way of your joy? Why is joy important in the Grow Program of Hope and Recovery? We talk about all this and more on our May Grow Mental Health Podcast. Jenny is joined by Eanna and Caitriona, both members of Grow Groups for over 3 years, to talk about all things joy, fuzziness, and laughter.

As always, we would love to hear what you think at [email protected]

Thank you for listening!

Produced by Grow Mental Health, Ireland

Music: Happy Life by FREDJI.

Thank you to Caitriona and Eanna for the sore cheeks and real talk.
