Mental Health in Grime: Episode 5 w/ Shilanguu

In episode 5 of Mental Health in Grime, I El Formosa, sit down with Shilanguu and talk all things mental health and music.

This episode comes with a *trigger warning* as there is talk of suicide.

Shilanguu talks about his battle with ill mental health over the years; hitting rock bottom and how he came back from that. We discuss anxiety, severe depression, OCD and suicide. Shilanguu talks about his support network and how they helped him get back on his feet. He also talks about family and friends who found it hard to understand his mental health issue and how he dealt with that.

In the second part of the interview, we talk about his life as a DJ, his favourite Grime tunes and of course his infamous sets - Shilanguu sessions.

Check out both parts of the interview below.
