Understanding Mental Health in the Media
There's a reason why talking about mental health in any setting can be intimidating: it's about the wounds you can't see and the complex neurological wiring you can't fully understand. So when depictions of mental illness are finally shown in the media center, it can be a relief to those who suffer in silence knowing they are not alone in their feelings, or a misreading of reality. So, is mental health being stigmatized by the media? Hear from Joe Oria, LCSW, LAC talk about how what we consume in the media about mental health impacts us. Go to our different channels and listen the new episode of Reach for Wellness with Vanessa Alarcón
