The BC Schizophrenia Society is proud to introduce a myth-busting podcast.
“Look Again: Mental Illness Re-Examined” is all about creating a safe space where individuals can understand and educate themselves on issues affecting people who are marginalized and overlooked in society. We believe that the mental illness cause is too important not to share with other podcasts and content creators in Vancouver. With an audience that stems from the same community, we would love to collaborate with you on this important topic to shed some light on mental illness taboos and myths. We are looking to get Look Again into as many ears as possible.
Two voices are better than one.
With a combined audience, we can make a bigger and better impact on these social issues. In exchange for this potential partnership, we would love to promote your platform on ours. The British Columbia Schizophrenia Society has a large email list of over 3,000 which will allow for opportunities to help promote your brand further. Annually, BCSS’s website traffic receives over 130,000 unique visitors drawing attention to your content.
Our podcast is led by Faydra Aldridge, CEO of BCSS, who speaks with medical experts, families, and people with lived experience of mental illness to dispel myths and get to the truth. It includes frank conversations, up-to-date medical information, and stories of hope and resilience.
“Mental illness is all around us and how we deal with it impacts everything, from our family life, the cost on our medical system, substance use, employment, the demand for housing… the list goes on and on.”
Together, we can shine a light on the issues of mental illness in the Vancouver community through sharing unique and personal stories. With your empowering voice and platform, we will be able to better educate the public on topics that affect all individuals within our communities.
Please let us know if you see an opportunity to cross-promote our podcasts/platforms. If you are interested in collaborating please respond to this email and we can discuss further.
British Columbia Schizophrenia Society is a non-profit organization founded in 1982 by families and friends of people with schizophrenia.
