The Project’s Journey

Back in April 2018, we stumbled over a book by Johann Hari called Lost Connections. It took us several months to properly conceive, write and plan the content as well as making a vital connection with the outstanding Todd Weller.

Hari’s excellent book is a shocking exposé of the spurious credibility of anti-depressant medication and the dangerous implications of them for our wider psycho-social health.

But it doesn’t go far enough.


Mairi and I are sufficiently concerned about these findings to deliberately go after a wider conversation about anti-depressants and how Hari’s book is a wake-up call not only for society at large but also the sleepy Church.

We’re calling these conversations The Bothy Sessions.
