With stress and anxiety mounting over the course of the pandemic, particularly for young people, Doctor Radio (Ch. 110) hosted a two-hour live special highlighting the new RADical Hope collaboration between NYU Langone Health and New York University, which you can listen to anytime below.

Coupled with the social distancing required by Covid-19, emotional isolation has reached an all-time high and young adults are faced with high amounts of stress, grief and uncertainty about the future. Partnering with RADical Hope, NYU Langone Health introduced a program designed to teach resilience and address the mental, physical, and emotional building blocks to better navigate difficult times of transition.

Focused on the emerging crises of disease and despair, special discusses the growing rates of depression, anxiety, substance abuse disorders, and suicidal thoughts and offers resources for youth and adults. This special edition of Doctor Radio’s The Psychiatry Show is hosted by Dr. Charles Marmar, MD — Chair of the Department of Psychiatry, Director of the PTSD Research Program at NYU Langone Health and the Lucius N. Littauer Professor of Psychiatry at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine — and co-hosted by Dr. Lenard Adler, MD — Vice Chair for Education in the Department of Psychiatry, Director of the Adult ADHD Program at NYU Langone Health and Professor of Psychiatry in the Department of Psychiatry and the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at NYU Grossman School of Medicine.

Special guests include Dr. Linda Mills — Vice Chancellor and Senior Vice Provost for Global Programs and University Life. Dr. Mills oversees student life and strategic planning at New York University — and Dr. Naomi Simon, MD — Vice Chair for Research Faculty Development and Mentorship, Department of Psychiatry, Professor of Psychiatry at NYU Grossman School of Medicine and Director of Anxiety and Complicated Grief Disorders at NYU Langone Health.

In addition to this illuminating live special, SiriusXM will create additional long and short-form programming addressing mental health and resilience, depression, anxiety, and well-being, as well as focusing on on symptoms and locating resources for support and assistance.

The RADical Hope campus wellness program was established in 2018 by Pam and Phil Martin in honor of their son Chris who died by suicide during his junior year of college in 2017. Like many young people today, Chris experienced periods of profound emotional isolation and lacked the outlets to express his struggles. RADical Hope addresses America’s mental health crisis among today’s youth by building resilience in young lives and working with proven, frontline personal programs that deliver on its core priorities: connectivity, empowerment, emotional regulation, and engagement.
