Inspired by the idea of red tape, Radio Totally Normal Toronto brings you an episode about money and mental health. Living with a mental illness sometimes means having a reliable and sufficient income can be challenging. In this episode, we'll be talking about social assistance, health, poverty and stigma. It's an eye opener.
Our guests are:
John Stapleton, a writer and instructor who worked in the areas of social assistance policy and operations.
