Ross has suffered from severe mental health problems for much of the past ten years, including psychosis. He and his father talk in depth about the nature of psychosis, the impact it had on their relationship, when his parents decided to have him sectioned, how Ross ran away, suicidal thoughts and depression, his music and its part in his recovery and his hopes for the future.
The Listening Project conversations collectively form a picture of our lives and relationships today. Recordings were made by BBC producers of people sharing an intimate conversation, lasting up to an hour and on a topic of the speakers' choice.
