Real People. Real Stories. Real Hope.
We bring personal stories of what life is like living with a mental illness. Our goal is to let others facing similar challenges know they are not alone in their feelings and experiences.
Each week, we'll be discussing different aspects of mental health. Our host, Ruth Mendoza, will be talking with people about their experiences, how they're coping and what is and isn't working for them. Our co-host and HealthyPlace.com Medical Director, Dr. Harry Croft, will be providing insight and his expertise on the subject matter.
In the second half of the show, we open it up to you, our viewers. During this segment, you can ask Dr. Croft your personal questions about anything you wish concerning mental health. Dr. Croft will give you an easy-to-understand straight answer.

Want to Participate or Be A Guest?
At the first of each month, our producer, Josh Nowitz, will be posting a list of the topics that will be discussed on the show. If you are interested in being a guest on the show, drop Josh an email (producer AT healthyplace.com) and put "I want to be a guest" in the subject line. Tell us which show topic you're interested in plus a bit about yourself and why you think your story would be a compelling one. We interview all our guests remotely, so of course, you must have a webcam.
We also have other ways of participating in the show.
- Question for our guest: During the interview, Ruth will mention that we are now taking questions for our guest. All you have to do is type your question on the chat screen. We will be taking 2-3 questions. If we don't select your question, please do not feel that we are ignoring you or that your question isn't worthy of being asked. The fact of the matter is that we only have a few minutes for questions and we can't possibly take them all.
- Question for Dr. Croft: You can email your question to our producer by Monday at 5 p.m. before the Tuesday show. Please include your real first name. We will also be taking a few questions through the chat screen.
- Make a Video: We want to personally encourage you to participate in the show. So many people will benefit by what you have to say. Each week, after Ruth finishes interviewing our guest, we will run a 2-3 minute video of viewers talking about their personal experiences with the subject matter we are discussing on the show that week. You can share your message on any aspect of the topic, whether it's one of struggle or success, by recording a :15-:45 second video and uploading it to your youtube site. (a couple of technical tips -- please make sure you are well lit and the sound is clear) Again, please drop Josh an email at - producer AT healthyplace.com - and let him know that you have uploaded a video ( include the link to the video) and the show topic you are addressing. We need the video by the Sunday before the Tuesday show so we have enough time to edit the clips together.
The HealthyPlace TV Show tagline is: "Real People, Real Stories, Real Hope." Each week, our goal is to deliver a show which lives up to that. Whether you participate or you decide to be a viewer only, we hope you'll join us and benefit from the show. Feel free to email Josh anytime with your suggestions, concerns, well wishes or comments.
We'll see you on Tuesday evenings.
