Madness Radio delivers dose of sanity
Finally a radio show that delivers some truth in a mental health world dominated by pharmaceutical company deception and corruption. Week after week Madness Radio delivers thoughtful, compassionate dialogue from the real experts from around the world.
As a person with a "psychiatric label" and a history of sometimes intense alienation,this show has provided me with support and a much needed sense of kinship that's literally made my life much more livable at times.Will Hall is fantastic and the guests are always interesting.I have immense gratitude for everyone that makes this show possible.Thank-you from the bottom of my heart.
If you work with people in need, you must learn more about the nuance of the need. Please listen.
A superb podcast. This is one of the best kept secrets out there. I find the epsiodes very informative. This serves as the "rounding out" of my mental health counseling training. A professional, thoughtful production.
