Kelly Holmes on mental health and happiness: ‘I’ve been to the lowest point and the highest
Kelly Holmes’s new podcast, What Do I Do? Mental Health and Me, is out on audible.co.uk on 22 March 2019
Since retiring, double gold medalist athlete Kelly Holmes has opened up about her self-harming, the loss of her mother and her mental health. In a new 11 part podcast Kelly interviews celebrities about a time they reached their nadir and their route to recovery. Alastair Campbell plays his bagpipes in his bathroom as he discusses his psychotic breakdown, Philip Pullman reads from the 400-year-old The Anatomy of Melancholy and tells her he cried nonstop for months in his 20s and Davina McCall takes Holmes to the gym and talks about the heroin addiction that almost destroyed her.
