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 david@anawkwardpause.org, 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.
