NEW to MHNR Network!  That Infernal Noise – Tune In if You’re Feeling Alone!

That Infernal Noise:  A podcast new to MHNR Network that’s providing a safe space to feel a little less alone.

“If I am being honest, I feel like I have a higher calling to do something to help people. I have been told my whole life that people feel comfortable speaking to me and I enjoy that. I like thinking that I can help improve someone’s life just by talking or speaking to them and if I can help even one person it will be worth it.” – Robert (Host)

“We are those f*cked up thoughts in the back of your head”

When asked what his goal is for every episode of That Infernal Noise, Robert responds, “That no one is alone, no matter what they think.  I am not the atypical person you think of when it comes to being an advocate for mental health and have felt isolated because of it.”  He wants everyone to know that, no matter your race/creed/sexual orientation or any applicable qualifier you wish to use, that it is always okay to talk about your issues and seek help in whatever way works best for you.  He understands that managing our mental health is unique to each individual.

Robert uses his ‘weak’ and ‘insecure’ moments from his day to day life as the main talking points for each of his episodes and as a form of therapy.  He appreciates not only helping others, but there is a certain level of catharsis he gets from just being to put his truths out into the universe, rather than shoving it down and allowing it to fester and eventually consume him.

When asked about any personal information he’d like to share, he shared a bit of wisdom that his son reminded him of when he was having a bad mental day, “it is okay to have negative thoughts, it is what you do after them that matters.” He noted it was nice to know that teenagers listened…occasionally.

How a child can change a community, without ever talking.

During his abbreviated 22-year life, Graham Gardner was unable to speak or to walk on his own. Yet he forged meaningful relationships wherever he went. His cerebral palsy forced him to rely on other people — sometimes complete strangers — for absolutely everything. Yet he accepted his reality, lived in the present moment, reveled in relationships, and exuded radiance around him. Graham personified joy and he lived love. 

 

My interview with his father, Dr. Steven Gardner.

 

This powerful episode will move you and have you question the idea of “Quality of Life”.

 

Graham’s father, Dr. Steven Gardner, is an internist at Massachusetts General Hospital, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and past Medical Director of the Massachusetts Special Olympics. He is a past winner of the Harvard Medical School Humanism in Medicine Award. Steven is a prominent photographer whose images focus on the resilience of people facing adversity and the compassion of caregivers. His work has been exhibited in Boston and Martha’s Vineyard, where he is a volunteer physician at Camp Jabberwocky, the location and inspiration for many of the stories in his book, Jabberwocky: Lessons of Love from a Boy Who Never Spoke (Made for Success Publishing, April 27, 2021).
