Advocating for mental health awareness and making an effort to open up an avenue for caregivers and families to share their journey, as it relates to their loved ones who have struggled with a mental health condition. Caregivers and families are in most cases forgotten about and their challenge is not understood. The truth is families/caregivers also need support. Let's talk and share for strength, encouragement, ideas, information or just be a “shoulder” for understanding and support to say "You are not alone, because I, Hear The Music."
This is simply a brief introduction to The “HEAR THE MUSIC” Podcast, hosted by Jennifer Ayers-Moore. We will discuss my experiences with my brother who has a mental health condition and the journey. I am doing this because I know there are others out there who have been challenged with some of the same issues and had to peel off layer after layer, in an effort to come to terms with the reality of mental illness. We welcome you to share your experiences, offer suggestions for new episodes, ideas on where and how family members can get help so we can share it, or if you just want to listen just to know that you are not alone. Please note that we will be respectful to you about mental illness and will not ever intentionally hurt anyone, so we are asking for your respect with this topic of mental illness and health, which is already so misunderstood. Let’s work together to eradicate the “stigma,” that has been a thorn for so long. We can make a difference by standing strong to “HEAR THE MUSIC!”
