On The Mend with Matt Willis

12:51 PM GMT+1 on July 16, 2023

    On The Mend with Matt Willis - Matt Willis, from the band McBusted, has started a new mental health podcast talking with notable names about how they were able to navigate choppy waters. In the first episode he chats to his friend Dougie Poynter from the band McFly, who he has known since the age of 15, who talks about being in recovery and his two experiences in rehab.

    Dougie’s hope is that by talking about his experiences, he can help change perceptions: “Both times I felt they were huge life-changing things. They were the worst times in my life and the best, for some reason. I still reference my last stint in rehab whenever I’m not feeling quite right,” he says. “I was in the safest place.” 

    “I know he was nervous about talking about his stuff, but there’s something about owning your narrative, that I think is really really powerful,” says Willis.
