A new documentary series has shone a light on the plight of mental health amongst Kiwi men.

In My Mind centres around prominent Kiwis, Paul Whatuira, Willy de Wit and David Downs as they examine their mental health issues and their own difficulties. 

The two-part documentary aired on TVNZ this month and is still available for streaming, and is split into two parts: Breaking Point and Mid-Life Crisis.

Comedians Willy de Wit and David Downs have suffered their own medical issues - de Wit suffered from a stroke in 2016, and Downs was diagnosed with cancer in late 2017, which was meant to be terminal. The two joined Andrew Dickens to discuss their involvement in Mid-Life Crisis and how they have fought back against their demons.
