So you think you know about mental health? Take our quiz to find out.

Some experts think we’re in an anxiety epidemic. And our addiction to social media isn’t helping by creating a hustle culture and setting us up to be unhappy about our lives. Why are we stressed and feeling burnt out? And, more importantly, what can we do about it?

Dr Norman Swan is one of our most trusted doctors and a much-respected broadcaster. In his new book So You Think You Know What’s Good for You? Norman replaces medical myths, half-truths, and misconceptions with the information you need to make better decisions about how to eat, sleep and how to live. This informative and entertaining new read is for everyone – be it grandparents, parents or millennials, as it demystifies how to achieve good health and wellness in the modern age.
