Roundtable

Anxiety economy: Can products really calm us down?

Remember the fidget spinner craze of 2017? At the time, we saw it as the latest in a long line of toy fads, like the yo-yo and Rubik’s cube. A year on, it’s being linked to a much larger trend: the growth in anxiety diagnoses and the economy that’s emerging around it. At the Roundtable we have Dr Kathleen Hall, CEO of The Stress Institute and founder of the Mindful Living Network; Mark McDermott, Professor of Health Psychology at the University of East London; Denise McKenna, Activist at the Mental Health Resistance Network and Dr Carolyne Keenan, Chartered Psychologist. Roundtable is a discussion programme with an edge. Broadcast out of London and presented by David Foster, it's about bringing people to the table, listening to every opinion, and analysing every point of view. From fierce debate to reflective thinking, Roundtable discussions offer a different perspective on the issues that matter to you. Watch it every weekday at 15:30 GMT on TRT World. #anxiety #anxietyeconomy #mentalhealth #mentalhealthcuts #generalisedanxietydisorder
