Why did We Choose To Start A Mental Health Podcast?

The All important question, why in the world did the two of us start a podcast? Well, Why does anyone ever start a podcast? It’s almost always because they feel they have an interesting story to tell and I’m going to be honest with you, we feel very confident that we do. Of course mental health is always a difficult topic to discuss. We all deal with our own struggles and have fluctuating levels of confidence, anxiety, mood etc… but are your levels crippling to the point where you can’t get out of bed for the day, or make your own decisions, or spend obsessive hours contemplating why you’re not good enough? 

A Familiar Tale

Did you ever grow up with that one person, or go to school with that person, or work with that person who was always pretty cool and “normal”, then one day,  they just went “crazy” and they were never heard from again? Did you ever wonder what happened to them? This podcast is a telling of one of those tales, we can assure you that those people are just as normal as everyone else, they have gone through their own experiences, lived their own lives, and had battles with their own demons. 

What We’re Trying To Accomplish

Our main goal for this podcast is to destigmatize the stigmatized. We want to show the world what it’s like to deal with serious mental illness. These are topics that  have been portrayed as taboo and demonized in our society. We want to set out to actively change that, one brain at a time. We are looking to inform, entertain and engage those experiencing mental health issues, whether that be the person experiencing the illness themselves, or friends, family members that serve as the person’s support system. We intend to show our audience how to recognize warning signs, how to go about seeking professional help, and cope in a unified effort with their support systems. 

At the end of the day, we hope to curate a platform of free expression and like-minded creativity, welcome to all backgrounds. Just a disclaimer, we may ruffle some feathers along the way.
