Radio has lots of good messages for mental health. Get to know the person instead of defining him by his disorder. Treat people like human beings. Be kind. At the same time, it does fall prey to some negative ideas held by many people. For one, the principal calls Radio a boy, when he is actually 23 years old. Also, it seems that people pity Radio. People talk down to him before they get to know him. He is bullied. It creates sympathy with the viewers instead of empathy.
