Mental Health America of Kentucky

  • 13 people are interested

The Bell Podcast is the official podcast of MHA Kentucky. We aim for two episodes a month, minimum, of length 30-60 minutes. We're looking for an audio editor to remove "umms", a laugh that is more of a vocal tic, and to help stitch together our intro and outro music to the files we provide.

Our podcasts are sometimes recorded in .m4a format through Zoom and an ideal candidate would be able to convert that to .mp3 or .wav as well. Episode length varies 30-60 minutes. Raw recording may eek into 75 minutes sometimes.

Topics we cover are admittendly difficult. We talk about suicide prevention, eating disorders, funding mental health, improving the mental health system, racism, health disparities, LGBTQ+ wellness and acceptance, and more. We also talk with Kentucky legislators about mental health policy, with an increasing frequency on that happening December to March each year. Editors are warned about the content in advance of receiving an episode.

Please let us know if you're interested in doing one or more episodes a month!

Description

Mental Health America of Kentucky, formerly the Kentucky Mental Health Association, was founded in 1951 to promote mental health, prevent mental illnesses, and improve the care and treatment of persons with a mental illness. Its founding members and early supporters included Dr. Spafford Ackerly, Dr. William Keller, Barry Bingham, Sr., Dr. Arthur Kasey, Dr. Frank Gaines, Dr. Harold McPheeters, and Cornelia Serpell. The association was instrumental in the creation of Kentucky's community mental health services system and laws preserving the rights of people involuntarily hospitalized for a mental illness.
