The Mental Work podcast has a NEW sponsor — The Australian Association of Psychologists Inc (AAPi). Check out the announcement on our socials here (Insta) and here (LinkedIn). AAPi works really hard to create a unified, equal, and diverse psychology profession, and these values align perfectly with my own, so I’m THRILLED to have AAPi sponsor the podcast. If you’re not already an AAPi member, do check them out and see whether they are right for you: https://bit.ly/JoinAAPI
