Mental Health News Radio hosts podcast about first responder mental health
Mental Health News Radio Network, the world’s largest podcast network dedicated exclusively to mental health content, is now hosting UpTalk with veteran paramedic, volunteer firefighter and mental health advocate Sean Conohan. UpTalk focuses on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, first responder mental illness and health. It aims to provide hope, inclusion and resources to first responders experiencing mental health problems.
Conohan’s own journey was the catalyst that prompted him to start UpTalk; he developed job related PTSD and received funding from a Canadian Trust to attend specialised therapy, which he credits as lifesaving.
Drawing on Conohan’s personal experience UpTalk features clinical experts and guests who share their own recovery stories. At the end of each episode guests share a personal message to listeners struggling with their mental health.
To date over 30 episodes have aired. Recent interviewees include firefighter Chris Fields who responded to the Oklahoma City Bombing and peer support specialist Syd Gravel.
Conohan said, “Seeing the podcast grow validates the fact that people are looking to learn about this subject just as I am. There are a ton of people looking for information, support, and a feeling of inclusion. I hope that the podcast continues to be a safe place of education and sharing for anyone that wants to listen!”
UpTalk furthers the mission of Mental Health News Radio Network, to reduce stigma about mental health through advocacy, education and dialogue. Through open conversations about first responder mental health the podcast encourages listeners to reach out for help and keep fighting.
