Unmet Needs: Living with Mental Illness in Central Illinois

An Illinois Public Media News series beginning April 10.

Holly Brandt

On Thursday, April 10, Illinois Public Media News begins a series of reports on air and online about the challenges of living with mental illness in our region. Over the course of the following few weeks, we’ll hear the stories of a mother and her son who is living with schizophreia, a couple living with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, and many more.

  • At 6:40 and 8:40 am Thursday, April 10, during Morning Edition, we’ll hear a report from WILL’s Sean Powers, who investigates some of the reasons many patients are waiting up to six months to get a first time appointment with a psychiatrist.
  • At 6:40 am and 8:40 am on Friday, April 11, Sean talks to Holly and Rich Brandt of St. Joseph about their life together coping with diagnoses of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
  • Live at 10 am on Friday, April 11, WILL’s Focus will look at what some hospitals are doing to try and shorten those wait times and provide better care, including using telemedicine where patients talk to a doctor they see and hear on a monitor.

The series continues at 6:40 and 8:40 am on Thursday, April 17 and 24. And, each week during Here and Now, we'll hear oral histories from those living with mental illness and their loves ones. Tune in at 12:45 pm or listen and read about their stories online.

During the next few weeks, we’re also interested in hearing what you have to say about mental illness in central Illinois. We’ll be hosting a twitter chat Friday, April 11, at 11 am. Tweet us #WILLchat.

All Songs Considered

1 pm Sundays on WILL-AM: Host Bob Boilen spins new music from emerging bands.

All Songs Considered is NPR's guide to discovering new music below the radar. Every week, host Bob Boilen and producer Robin Hilton go through hundreds of new CDs to find sneak previews of music that's worth getting excited about, whether it's the latest Swedish pop band, a hip hop artist going ambient, or a singer-songwriter with a twisted new take on love. Sometimes, artists or critics stop by All Songs Considered with their top picks. It's the perfect show for listeners who love to stay current, but can't always wade through a myriad of sources.

All Songs Considered started as a Web show in 2000 after receiving countless letters from listeners who wanted to know more about the music played between stories on NPR's evening news program, All Things Considered. Now All Songs Considered has become a destination for artists such as Bjork or T. Bone Burnett to spin their favorite tunes, or musicians such as Wilco, St. Vincent, Wild Flag or Bon Iver to webcast their live concerts. It is a show that one week can feature the music of Portugal and the next feature The Black Keys or Andrew Bird.

Changes to WILL-AM schedule

Commodity Week now airs live at 2:30 pm Fridays. NPR's Ask Me Another (puzzles, games and trivia) and All Songs Considered (new music from emerging bands) join the schedule.

The new year brings two new NPR programs to the weekend lineup and moves WILL Agriculture’s Commodity Week to a live broadcast at 2:30 pm Fridays from its former 11:30 am Saturday slot. The changes took effect Friday, Jan. 3.

“Listeners who depend upon timely agricultural information no longer need to wait an entire day for the broadcast,” WILL’s content director David Thiel said. “Not only will Commodity Week be available earlier, it will be conveniently paired with The Closing Market Report, our other signature agricultural series.”

NPR’s Ask Me Another joins the Saturday schedule at 11 am. The new program blends brainteasers and trivia with comedy and music. Hosted by comedian Ophira Eisenberg, storyteller for The Moth, Ask Me Another invites in-studio guests and listeners to stretch their noggins, tickle their funny bones and enjoy witty banter and guitar riffs from house musician Jonathan Coulton.

Each hour, listeners can play along as Eisenberg puts questions to a rotating band of puzzle gurus, audience members and special mystery guests, who then take a turn in the contestant's chair facing trivia games written especially for him or her.

With the close of State of the Re:Union’s fall season, NPR’s All Songs Considered fills the space at 1 pm Sundays. It’s a weekly online multimedia program started 14 years ago by NPR’s All Things Considered director Bob Boilen, and has become known as a source of discovery for new music of many genres. The half-hour program is followed by State Week in Review, which had been in the AM schedule at 11 am Saturdays.
