WAYNESVILLE, N.C., September 21, 2018 – Mental Health News Radio Network, the world’s largest podcast network dedicated exclusively to mental and behavioral health and well-being content, is proud to announce Cope Notes as one of its sponsors. Founded by Cope Notes CEO, metal musician and mental health advocate Johnny Crowder, Cope Notes is an innovative mental health app that uses daily text messages to promote good mental and emotional health.

Mental Health News Radio Network CEO Kristin Walker and Director of Programming Melanie Vann were early supporters of Cope Notes and among the first people to publicly endorse the app. They reached out to Crowder initially.

Crowder said, “The number one barrier in mental wellness is simply a general lack of awareness, so when I read into MHNRN, partnering up was a no-brainer.”

Johnny Crowder

Founder and CEO of Cope Notes

Crowder, who grew up with multiple mental health diagnoses including bipolar disorder, OCD and schizophrenia, developed Cope Notes to provide a realistic, helpful and empowering tool for people struggling with their mental health.

He said, “It’s pretty tough to endure severe mental strain or trauma without wanting to help other people who feel that same burden. That pain opens up a deep chasm of empathy and compassion for anyone else who understands and it’s impossible to ignore. I think about other people who struggle with mental illness every single day.”

Mental Health News Radio Network and Cope Notes share a common goal to combat stigma towards mental health through peer advocacy, education and open dialogue.

In addition to founding Cope Notes, Crowder fronts the band Prison, whose lyrics address mental illness-related topics.
