Evidence from WHO (The World Health Organisation) suggests that nearly half of the world's population are affected by mental illness with an impact on their self-esteem, relationships and ability to function in everyday life. An individual's emotional health can impact their physical health. Poor mental health can lead to problems such as substance abuse.
Derived from the ancient word "šamān", used in many Eastern cultures, meaning “one who knows” or "seeker", shamanism encompasses the premise that shamans are intermediaries or messengers between the human world and the spirit worlds. Shamans are said to treat ailments and illnesses by mending the soul. Alleviating traumas affecting the soul or spirit are believed to restore the physical body of the individual to balance and wholeness. Shamans also claim to enter supernatural realms or dimensions to obtain solutions to problems afflicting the community. Shamans claim to visit other worlds or dimensions to bring guidance to misguided souls and to ameliorate illnesses of the human soul caused by foreign elements. Shamans operate primarily within the spiritual world, which, they believe, in turn affects the human world. The restoration of balance is said to result in the elimination of the ailment.

It's Not That Deep Bro Podcast
The world of art can be a confusing place at the best of times. Everything is up to interpretation. Legions of fans up in arms under the behest of the artists and the decisions they make with their art. Is Art just an escape from the grueling grind of modern day life or is it something to be questioned and dissected? Martin Duverge and Jack Ølund, representing each corner respectively, take a look at some of the films, television series, video games, books, paintings, short films and any other pieces of art that, over the years, have been described as mindfucks, weird for the sake of being weird or just simply bad and hope to find some middle ground between our perspectives.
