The show opens with a discussion between the hosts and then an introduction to a topic or guest. The subject that day was youth mental health.
Arriving at CHCH I met the show’s producer Christine Cho. We discussed possible questions and the format for the broadcast. I was told that I would be in a studio with a cameraman and the hosts would be in another studio. I would have an earpiece to hear their questions. Internally, I wondered how the interview would come off in this format, especially given the subject: Depression and Suicide.
As I sat in the studio with my thoughts I looked over at my daughter, Aimee, she gave me a smile and a thumbs up-“Mom, you’ll be fine’. I took a big breath and waited to hear Mark Hebscher’s first question.
As a parent and one who has lost a child, I felt both hosts asked thoughtful and important questions relating to our story and to the state of youth mental health in general. Please click here for the entire interview.
