The Students of Mind Podcast was developed at the start of the COVID-19 quarantine in March of 2020. Seeing that she had more time at home, Jayde looked for a way that she could begin to do some mental health education and advocacy work. After being introduced to the idea of creating a podcast by her psychology professor, Jayde began planning and recording with the help of three classmates (shout out to Sarah, Aliyah, and Ottavia!). Since its launch in June 2020, the show has gained 5,000 downloads in over 80 countries. Jayde covers various mental health related topics through interviews with mental health experts and healers, and in the second season began to include interviews with survivors–people like herself who live everyday with mental illness. When an individual has lived experience with mental illness or managing mental wellbeing, Jayde believes that they are also experts whose voices and stories need to be shared and amplified. Students of Mind aims to normalize talking openly about mental health, remove the many barriers that exist to receiving mental health education and resources, reduce the stigma and taboo’s that exist around mental health and mental illness, and express that everyone has mental health that needs to be tended to just as our physical health needs to be tended to.
