Isabel Hardman is the much-respected media and print journalist, currently Assistant Editor of The Spectator and the presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Week in Westminster.
In 2016, her mind ‘stopped working’ as she fell prey to severe depression and anxiety. She took time off on long-term sick leave and despite several relapses has returned to work with a much-improved ability to cope. She has since become one of the UK’s most prominent public voices on mental health.
She credits her better health to her passion for exercise, nature and the great outdoors - from horse-riding and botany to cold-water swimming and running. In The Natural Health Service, she draws on her own personal experience, interviews with mental illness sufferers and psychologists, and the latest research to examine what role wildlife and exercise can play in helping anyone cope with mental illness.
Isabel Hardman was named Journalist of the Year in 2015 at the Political Studies Association’s annual awards. She is the author of the bestseller Why We Get the Wrong Politicians which won at the 2018 Parliamentary Book Awards and was shortlisted for Waterstones’ Book of the Year
