Jordan’s Space on Yowah Radio

Jordan’s Space is a 60-minute online radio show and every fortnight, on Thursday evenings from 7pm (GMT), you can join Steve Phillip, alongside members of The Jordan Legacy team, together with some very special guests, for an hour of conversation, music and above all hope.

This show does discuss themes of suicide and while listening, we’d encourage you to take care of yourself by stepping away from the show at any point, should you find the content triggering or uncomfortable to listen to. For support, please visit our website’s Help resources.

Links to all shows will be saved here until the launch of our new website in the autumn of 2022

Show 2 – ‘Life after loss’ was first broadcast on 21st July 2022

Dr Sangeeta Mahajan is a Consultant Anaesthetist at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, she also describes herself as a mental health activist and educator.

When a consultant anaesthetist tells you that there is no comparison between the level of funding and training provided for mental health compared with physical health and how she was let down by an NHS system she thought would protect her 20 year old son when he fell into a deep depression, then it’s time we all sat up and paid attention.

On October 16th 2014, Sangeeta lost her 20 year old son to suicide. This story is not just about loss, it’s about hope and how Sangeeta was able to reframe what life meant to her. Listen as she explains how finding how to have more compassion for herself led to her becoming, in her view, a better and more compassionate doctor.
