“I like doing radio because it’s so intimate. The moment people hear your voice, you’re inside their heads, not only that, you’re in there laying eggs.”
Douglas Coupland, Author and Artist
“Television gives an image, but radio gives birth to a million images in a million brains.”
Peggy Noonan, Author
“There is a feeling, when you listen to radio, that it’s one person, and they’re talking to you, and you really feel their presence as one person.”
Ira Glass, Public Radio Personality
Eating disorders. Autism Spectrum Disorders. Post Traumatic Stress Disorders. Alcohol or Substance Abuse Disorder. Depression. Schizophrenia. Opioid Use Disorder. And so many others. Most, if not all, with aspects of societal stigma and shame associated with them.
Mental health issues … those dirty little family secrets kept locked away in a dark closet. You and your loved ones suffering in silence. Feelings of isolation. Feelings of being alone. Feelings of despair.
Beginning September 3, 2019, The Morgan Foundation, along with The Something for Kelly Foundation are teaming up to produce a weekly radio segment entitled, “The Mental Health Moment.”
Each week we will bring to you national and international experts practicing in the various fields of mental illness. And we will be asking difficult questions, hard questions. We will explore various aspects of these illnesses. Some programs may be difficult to listen to, as we will pull no punches.
Of course, eating disorders will always be our core passion and the focus of our on-going work. But humanity is inextricably linked together. Our flaws and illnesses are common and shared. Mental disorders are stigmatized many times over compared to “medical” conditions. And so we will address all mental disorders.
We hope you join us. We hope your vision and our mission are one and the same. We hope that together, we can help bring light to the darkness which exists within us; we can help alleviate some stigma and shame, and; together, we can help save one more life, one more precious life at a time.
