How Do People with Mental Illness Experience the World?

How do people with mental illness experience the world? How does the world respond to them? How helpful is it to label mental health struggles as illnesses? How helpful are medications? On the next Your Call, we'll talk about mental health--as it is experienced by those with imbalances, as it is viewed through psychiatric medicine, as it is portrayed through art. Do you or does anyone you know wrestle with depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder? Join us live at 11 or send us an email at How do we as communities provide support? And can we redefine the way we regard mental illness? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
