It’s Mental Health Week and Brainwaves is turning 10! Brainwaves is produced and presented by people with a lived experience of mental health issues. The show covers a wide range of interests and issues—previous shows have explored topics like women’s mental health, early interventions for psychosis, legal rights for consumers, mental health in the media, stigma in the workplace, promoting community inclusion and music as a means to recovery. In 2012, Brainwaves won the Excellence in Training Award by the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia. The Brainwaves team also won the Community Engagement award in the 2014 3CR Radio Awards. This week on Brainwaves we present a special 1 hour edition from 4.30-5.30pm. We'll chat with a few of the members of our team about their time as part of the Brainwaves show, some of their favourite memories and why Brainwaves is so important to them. You can tune into Brainwaves at 5pm on Wednesdays, where every week is Mental Health week. Brainwaves is sponsored by Wellways Australia.

The community of passionate members that founded 3CR made some tough decisions. They committed themselves and a growing community of listeners to back their vision of owning our station, and remaining independent of government or corporate influence. They did this by fundraising brick by brick, with working bees, door knocking and on-air drives and it is with the surety of this ownership that 3CR survives today. We are evolving and growing with the challenges of our times, driven by the energy, politics and passion of our volunteers and members who turn up and do the work - week in, week out. And we need your commitment to keep us on air. Show your support during Subscriber Drive 11-17 February 2019. Feed Radical Radio - subscribe now.
