The road to the Mountains – Part 1

As listeners to the show may already know, Cade and I are working on several new documentary series for the show. My pet project is Mountains, a show about mental illness, mental health issues and the people who live them.

Anyway, I got talking to some of my friends about the project, and came up with the following list:

  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Clinical Depression
  • Anxiety Disorder
  • Anorexia
  • Bulimia
  • Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • And so on, and so on, and so on…

Turns out that out of all my friends who I chatted to about the project, only one said ‘I never got diagnosed with anything, but I feel for all of my friends who do.’

Makes me think – is there anybody out there who hasn’t been touched by mental health issues?

If you have, and would like to share your story, get in touch with me at, because I’d love to hear from you. You don’t have to use your name on-air, but your story could be the thing that prompts someone else to seek help.
