Awareness for mental health services in the U.S. has increased in recent years, but more work must be done. Over time we’ve learned how to talk about it – and just how important it is to speak up – as one in five people will experience mental illness.
Sarah Cassell, the director of inpatient mental health services at Regions Hospital, joins the show for a conversation about the cultural connection to mental health stigma, the overall increase in the need for mental health services, mental health-related emergencies during the COVID-19 pandemic, and much more.
