We’re hoping that Uncharted Chapter will change a lot of lives. Our belief is that stigma is born of a lack of empathy and understanding, and empathy and understanding can be gained through immersive shared experience.

That’s why this podcast attempts to go beyond just spouting opinions and statistics (though helpful), and puts its listeners in an audio environment meant to help them feel what it’s like to live with a subset of serious mental illnesses.

It’s not easy. The first episode of this podcast, only 23 minutes, encompasses over 60 individual audio tracks taking nearly 40 hours to edit.

Please consider supporting Uncharted Chapter in its mission to reduce mental health stigma.
