The Help Show is a podcast dedicated to connecting individuals to mental health community resources. The podcast was started by Dallas, Texas native, NiEtta Reynolds following tragedy the death of a dear friend. From the life-changing event of her friend’s suicide two years ago, The Help Show was born. NiEtta’s friend suicide came as a shock to her. She didn’t see the warning signs of her friend’s severe depression. Following her friend’s suicide, NiEtta devoted enormous amounts of time towards research mental health and wellness. It is that research that sparked her passion for spreading mental health awareness and the epiphany that others (here in Dallas as well as World-wide) struggle with difficulties of depression.

The Help Show is more than a podcast. It is movement that is focused on change:

  1. Want to change the perception and visible stigma associated with mental health
  2. Barriers to access mental health resources
  3. Under-served and Disparities that some face when attempting to access mental health resources
  4. Spread awareness on how to access mental health resources in your community
  5. Encourage those with mental health diseases to seek help.

Currently, Ms. NiEtta Reynolds channels her passionate concern for others experiencing mental health challenges through advocacy.

At least 18.1% of American adults experience some form of mental disorder, 8.4% have a substance use disorder, and about 3% experience cooccurring mental health and substance use disorders (SAMHSA, 2016).


Letter from the Founder

You never know what battle someone is fighting until you lose them to suicide. 42.5 million American suffer from some form of mental illness, every 40 seconds an individual completes the act of suicide (Chilcott, L.A., Shapiro, C.M p10).

I lost one of my dearest friends to suicide, and from that moment my life changed. I knew I had to become the voice for those who couldn’t speak for themselves. I knew I had to be an advocate for mental health rights. Mental healthcare is a worldwide issue. It not only affects the black community but many communities that live in disparity. The stigma that accompanies mental illness creates an environment of shame, fear, and silence that develops into a mental cage of embarrassment.

The Help Show empowers people to educate themselves about mental health care, and community issues. The Help Show is close to my heart because it allows me to reach out to every community member. It allows me to become a helping hand, encouraging people, letting them know they are not alone, and they stand in their truth. That is the most powerful change you can make in your life. I ask you to join me on this journey. To help make a difference in disparity communities about mental health.

Let us get rid of the shame, let us build a village of encouragement.
