Teen voices: stories about mental health, stigma and hope

Despite the fact that almost 50% of the US population experience mental illness at some point in their lifetimes, mental health awareness and advocacy programs are often poorly funded and take a backseat to more “profitable and acceptable” medical conditions. On the next Line One, Anchorage teens return to the studio to discuss the power of storytelling.
