Can We Talk? is a new four-part miniseries for Mental Health Awareness Month in May. The series explores subjects that are difficult to talk about through a combination of compelling stories and expert guidance, offering listeners practical tools for navigating challenging conversations. The series is hosted by Dr. Anne Hallward, a psychiatrist and former faculty member at Harvard Medical School.

The first season of Can We Talk? includes four hour-long episodes that are evergreen, and can also stand alone:

◦ Apologies
◦ Asking for Help
◦ Loneliness
◦ Talking to White Kids About Race and Racism

This series has broad audience appeal, with special interest for parents, teachers, and healthcare professionals. As one listener wrote, “Safe Space Radio has provided me with thoughtful, intelligent and extraordinary information about being human.”
