Cure Stigma

Representatives from Johnson County Mental Health Center join us to discuss mental health awareness, stigma, access and recovery.  Special guests Una Walkenhorst and her father Bob will join the discussion as well as perform live in studio including a song off Bob and Una’s new CD “For Tomorrow”.

Fact: Mental health problems are actually very common. In 2014, about:

  • One in five American adults experienced a mental health issue
  • One in 10 young people experienced a period of major depression
  • One in 25 Americans lived with a serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or major depression

We will talk about the importance of policy makers and elected officials understanding the need for adequate funding mental health services and the importance of our next election.  The discussion wraps up on a positive note talking about prevention and building resilience by focusing on how our experiences can define us in a positive way.
