Just Listen

Just Listen is a seven-part mental health podcast series, exploring how to support a person in serious and ongoing mental distress. Six New Zealanders and their support people share their mental health journey and challenges with journalist and host Juliette Sivertsen, with the final episode featuring an expert panel to discuss kindness, boundaries, mindfulness and self-care. These candid conversations aim to get people comfortable talking about mental health, to share stories of people living with a mental illness, and to discuss some of the helpful and not-so-helpful things some of us do and say when trying to help a person in distress. Together, we can work to better support people in our communities, and learn to just listen. Funded by the Mental Health Foundation of NZ, Like Minds Like Mine, supported by NZME.... Show More

In this episode of the Just Listen mental health podcast, host Juliette Sivertsen speaks with Samantha Adams about navigating her life through grief, a bipolar diagnosis, depression, drug abuse and psychosis.

Her journey began after watching her father’s health deteriorate due to cancer, and the unresolved grief that followed after his death.

Samantha wants to share her story so others don’t feel so alone in their journey, and show that with the right support, a personal in serious distress can learn to flourish and be well.

Her husband Chris joins Juliette in the latter part of the interview with what he does to ensure he’s being a good support person, while maintaining his own mental health and wellbeing.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
