January 10, 2020 (Foxboro, MA) — THE MENTAL HEALTH & ADDICTION PODCAST (THE M.A.P.)

It’s Okay to Ask for Directions… is the clever tagline for a new podcast that focuses on all issues mental health and addiction. The aptly named podcast features straightforward commentary, relevant interviews with leading industry experts, and powerful stories from people who have fought their way back from addiction and mental illness. The M.A.P. also provides education and resources, as well as a long overdue platform for discussing the reality of mental illness and addiction in our community and across the country.

The show was picked up by Foxboro Cable Access and is produced by Andy Bernstein who also produced CrossCheck Radio with hockey legend, Kevin Stevens. After she had been a guest on his show, Bernstein approached Kimberley Walsh, who runs Brady’s Landing (a sober home for women on the Cape) with the idea of a podcast to help those suffering from addiction. A few months later, they were joined by Kristin Perry-Long, who has worked in the industry for many years helping people find treatment. With a unified commitment to the cause, The M.A.P. was born! “It’s important to use media to educate people about this disease in order to help lift the stigma,” said Bernstein. The threesome quickly realized that they have a great dynamic together… and they “enjoy being open and honest…without the fluff.” “It’s about breaking down the stigma and helping people have open discussions without feeling judged” says Long.

“From navigating insurance policies, to researching treatment centers, to finding sober living, we break it all down…” says Walsh. “We address the need for straightforward information in a very convoluted industry.” Most importantly, all three hosts agree, that it gives people hope so they don’t feel so alone. Episodes of The M.A.P. are available on YouTube at and at Foxboro Cable Access
