'Take It From Us: Our mental health radio'

Award winning mental health radio, Take It From Us broadcasts every Tuesday at 12.30pm on PlanetFM104.6 and is funded by Framework Trust. Take It From Us has changed its focus recently: empowering mental health is our theme and we are emphasizing hope, recovery, positivity, and therapies such as mindfulness and meditation.

For more than two decades, this mental health show – the longest running radio in New Zealand to delve into “psych stuff” – nails the key issues in mental health, and identifies ambassadors for hope and recovery. A key priority is to drive home just how damaging people’s judgments and prejudices can be. That’s called discrimination, and it’s the biggest barrier to people getting better…seeking housing…finding work…gaining independence, being included in their communities… and getting well and staying well. Hosted by mental health advocate and broadcaster Sheldon Brown, shows are available here on framework.org.nz/take-it-from-us or can be accessed live on PlanetFM104.6, via live streaming on www.planetaudio.org.nz/takeitfromus, or can be downloaded from planetaudio.org.nz. The four most recent shows are available too on the planetaudio website, as are specially selected broadcasts in the archive.
