Mental health: The radio station helping its listeners

Adam Turner is a presenter at Radio Respect, a station run by volunteers who all have mental health problems.

The hip-hop artist from Portsmouth also makes his own music about anxiety and depression.

He takes calls and messages from listeners who he says he’s helped out of “very dark places”.

The station, based in Bognor Regis, was created in a garden shed by founder Chris Collins six years ago.

The online station is hoping to get an FM licence later this year.

If you or someone you know has been affected by a mental health issue, help and support is available via BBC Action Line.
