Courage is the choice to act even when we feel afraid. It gives us the ability to address shame, stigma and silence -- and to feel our own strength. This hour-long show is about how accessing our courage supports our mental health and well-being. We explore the experience of living with mental illness -- such as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and borderline personality disorder -- as a kind of “courage boot camp.” We also discuss how culturally-imposed silence can enforce shame and make accessing our courage much more difficult. Safe Space Radio combines compelling storytelling with practical expert guidance to give you the tools you need to find your own courage -- including these tips and strategies.

Listen this Sunday, October 4 at 7 p.m. October 4 marks the beginning of Mental Illness Awareness Week
