MENTAL RADIO features practical patient-powered content about healing and managing mental illness. We focus on stories of recovery and concentrate on all of the ways there are to get better. While most mental health organizations focus on meds and talk therapy we believe patients deserve to have access to information about ALL of the ways there are to recover. We believe the best way to smash stigma is to tell stories of patient self-empowerment, and healing. Access more episodes, subscribe, and learn more.
