Waiting lists for mental health support are growing longer worldwide. People are not receiving help when they need it for conditions like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder or PTSD and too many people are committing suicide as a result. Peace Within Radio is a new vision in mental health support, where we aim to encourage and inspire those suffering to transform their pain through empowering words and music.
In 2018, I realised that in my darkest times when depression was at its deepest, what I wanted most of all was a voice to speak to me to tell me that I was okay; that I was enough; that I wasn’t a failure; and that I wasn’t alone. This is when Peace Within Radio was born.
Too many of us have been brought up with seriously critical inner voices and many of the ‘do-gooders’ out there simply tell us to be more positive, change our mindset and exercise more, but what they fail to recognise is that many suffering from mental health issues don’t know where to begin to re-frame the mind, to find a new way of viewing who they are and this is where we will come in.
As someone still on this journey, Peace Within Radio will be that voice in the darkness. We will be the bridge between no care and in-person mental health support. The voice on the radio when no help is coming or we feel alone.
Join Us Now
We are inviting in people who have been there and bought the t-shirt with respect to mental health issues and are coming through their own transformation and healing journey and what can be sometimes called mental illness. And no fear if you are anxious about being on the radio, you can record from the comfort of your own home, alone, through something as simple as a smartphone.
Along with real stories and encouragement we will be inviting in therapists, psychiatrists and healing coaches who can support those listening with ideas that can help them in their day-to-day struggle with depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief and chronic fatigue issues.
Music + Mental Health Encouragement = Balance
We are not just talk radio, far from it. What I realised when I was depressed was that listening to long talk radio style shows and presentations disturbed my inner balance and when my anxiety was high I had such a low attention span that I couldn’t absorb for very long anyway. So I knew that music was important, that shorter talks and shows would be essential.
So Peace Within Radio combines free mental health support worldwide with uplifting, soothing music and many tracks with empowering and inspirational lyrics.
There will be new artists, poets, conventional classic hits that get the energy going and chilled out songs that soothe when needed.
We aim to inspire mindfulness moments and to bring positive news to the airwaves so that we don’t get bombarded with the negatives that most of mainstream media dishes out.
It’s a big task gathering the tribe together, but I am up for it. It will grow organically and evolve as it is needed.
Mental health support is essential in this day and age and in this often dysfunctional society we live in. Unfortunately, overtime, it may be needed even more due to the fast pace of our lives and reliance on technology and lack of human connection.
My deepest hope is that Peace Within Radio reaches that one person, whoever that is, that needs reminding of their worth and value and it makes a difference no matter how small, across the world.
We launch on April 1st
