About the Host

78190278_10157950521449047_1285504297471049728_nUncharted Chapter is hosted by Jared Carter. Living with Bipolar 1 and Social Anxiety disorder led Jared to create a podcast that could serve those living with a mental illness by helping them to be seen, heard and understood. His hope is that through creative storytelling, we can achieve a greater understanding of the reality of different disorders, reduce stigma, improve mental health care, and drive compassion.

Jared lives in Tucson, AZ with his wife and three children. His wife, Trisha, lives with severe anxiety and serves alongside Jared as an advocate for people living with a mental illness.
