Strengths Based Radio
About This Show
Show Info: Our Objective: Strengths Based Radio is a source for interviews and reporting about mental health. Our primary goal is to promote recovery and well-being among those affected by mental illness. We hope to do this by presenting conversations about mental health that are encouraging, hopeful, and helpful. We want to emphasize positive developments in mental health treatments and services and to help strengthen recovery for individuals. And finally, we hope to treat mental health as a complex and many-sided subject that deserves careful thought and consideration. Seeking to avoid over-simplification, we will attempt to leave the intricacies that exist intact. What to expect from our podcasts: Strengths Based Radio brings you podcasts with interviews and stories about mental health from numerous sources and perspectives. We will interview practitioners, case managers, program directors, certified peer specialists, researchers, and other service providers contributing their energy and ideas to the ongoing process of mental health services. We will also celebrate the strengths of individuals, families, and communities with personal accounts and interviews. We are especially interested in understanding how each individual processes and negotiates his/her/their relationship to mental illness as part of their ongoing experience. What you can do: We see mental illness as a fully-integrated part of the spectrum of human experience that brings its own sets of ideas, wisdom, thinking, and feeling. Please join the conversation as we set out to deepen our understanding of mental health and to benefit those living with mental health challenges.
