Play • 1 hr

In this episode, TWLOHA’s Co-Executive Director Lindsay Kolsch talks with Kelly Jensen. Kelly discusses the issues with how mental health is portrayed through dramatic story arcs found in pop culture, why her career as a youth librarian inspired her to create a mental health anthology, and the five lies depression told her.

Kelly Jensen is an editor for Book Riot, as well as a writer and editor of young adult novels. Her most recent project, “(Don’t) Call Me Crazy: 33 Voices Start the Conversation about Mental Health,” is available for purchase now.
