By Estiva :

Could not bear to listen to someone who uses phrases such as " around mental health". "Around" has become such an overused and grammatically incorrect word- especially in the realm of psychology. Also, the use of "impact" as a verb was tiresome in the 1980's, and using it as such remains offensive today. I could not bear to listen past the first few sentences. At least, Mr. Nisbet does not use "uh" when he speaks. Kudos for that.
