UnMuted Radio

As part of our ongoing work to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing we were approached to launch a monthly show on Black Country Xtra radio.  Unmuted, is a show led by young people for young people and aims to make some noise for mental health.  Our show provides a platform to connect with other young people through music, interviews and fun debates.


Our team of hosts and content creators range from 11-16 years old.  Each show is created to highlight key themes and we are incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to interview some incredible people.  Our previous guests have included:

  • Hope Virgo, award winning mental health campaigner
  • Elliot Stewart, Paralympic Silver Judo Medallist
  • InPower Academy
  • Warren’s Hall Riding School
  • Sandwell Young People’s Services
  • Kaleidoscope
  • Birmingham Children’s Hospital
  • Mala Llama
  • PolarBear, spoken word artist
  • West Midlands Police Cadets
  • Alison Cope, Anti-Violence Campaigner
  • Simeon Beckett, West End Performer
