Lynne Malcolm interviews Dan Fisher on Emotional CPR. Her show, called All in the Mind is described as RN’s exploration of all things mental—a program about the mind, brain and behaviour, and the endlessly fascinating interactions between them.

More and more of us are learning CPR—the first aid technique used to assist someone with a heart problem. But many of us aren’t so confident helping someone with a mental health difficulty. A leading psychiatrist with his own lived experience would like to shift the paradigm of mental health services. He wants to empower people to play a strong role in their own recovery—so he’s teaching emotional CPR.
