Mental Disability Overview

Today we talk about Mental Disability through many points of view.  We hear a poem about gentrification from an artist living with anxiety, stage two bipolar disorder, and depression.  A psychiatric nurse describes her recovery from severe schizophrenia… and more.

Through the consumer and client empowerment movement, people are on the move.

Hear their stories as well as an analysis of the political and social landscape they navigate every day.

Schizophrenia, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, and eating addictions. We play excerpts of interviews with consumer advocate Sally Zinman, Catherine Penny and Fable the Poet.

This is a fund drive program and we are asking you to support KPFA, the station that supports our work and the work of so many people with mental disabilities working for their own recovery and the recovery of our culture.

Produced by Adrienne Lauby.  Hosts: Shelley Berman, Adrienne Lauby & Josh Elwood.
