Radio talk shows and other community radio formats on health issues have proven very effective in mobilizing a cohesive public response. Advertisements as well as critical articles facilitate the discussion and dissemination of information in the community.
From this perspective La Colifata uses radio as both therapy and to fight stigma. The Colifata is a non-governmental organization that develops research and provides mental health therapy through radio. It is commonly known as LT 22, the radio of the patients and ex-patients from the Hospital Borda in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is the first community radio in the world to broadcast from a neuropsychiatric hospital, although the example is now being followed by similar experiences in Mexico, Brazil and France.
