Mental illness is all around us and how we deal with it impacts everything, from our family life, the cost on our medical system, substance use, employment, the demand for housing… the list goes on and on.
The BC Schizophrenia Society’s brand new podcast series launched on March 31, 2021 with support from the BC Partners in Mental Health and Substance Use Information. The mission and message of the podcast aims to shine a light, once again, on the voices in the mental illness community through sharing the story of this podcast.
“Look Again: Mental Illness Re-Examined” will take a close look at the reality of serious mental illness, and the role we can all play in helping those who live with it lead the most productive lives possible. This podcast will speak with medical experts, families, and people with lived experience of mental illness to dispel myths and get to the truth. Be prepared for frank conversations, up-to-date medical information, immersive sound design, and stories of hope and resilience. This podcast is for anyone whose life has been touched by mental illness. In other words, it’s for everyone.
This podcast aims to humanize the impacts of schizophrenia on families and the worry and thoughts that families face, and aims to highlight the importance of education and support.
