Julia Sutherland introduces live performers tackling mental health issues through comedy.

In part one, Janey Godley, Felicity Ward, Keara Murphy, Debs Gatenby, Harriet Dyer and Julia Sutherland will be sharing stories, jokes and revelations about their experiences with various areas of mental health. If someone brings up depression, suicidal thoughts or serious mental illness - the last thing you'd do... is laugh at them. But for these women in comedy, that's exactly what they want you to do. By addressing subjects such as anxiety, compulsive behaviour, addiction and depression through comedy, they're helping to challenge stigma and increase understanding.

Produced by Dabster Productions for BBC Radio Scotland.
