We want to apologize again for the material you found offensive on our program. Humor is, by its nature, very subjective. What one person finds funny, another finds troubling. But we now understand why you found our piece on Christmas Carols inappropriate and will factor that information into any future comments we make concerning these subjects. We are opting not to make further comments on the issue on our program. We believe that the issues surrounding mental illness are serious ones, and that there are many journalistic programs in existence that can do much more justice to the complexities of the issue, and the positions you advocate than we can as a humor program. We have apologized to every listener who has written to complain about our choice of remarks, and we believe that is sufficient in this case. We do appreciate the information you've provided to us about mental illness and the issues that surround it, and we can assure you we will be more sensitive to material that goes on the air in the future.
NAMI wants to hear from you. Tell us your story
NAMI has named one of its premiere education programs-in which consumers with mental illnesses speak directly to community audiences about their experiences with brain disorders, treatment and recovery-in honor of In Our Own Voice, a documentary produced independently by Idaho Public Television (IDPTV) with funding from the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare.
With much appreciation and thanks for your beautiful messages and support.
Stella March, Coordinator
