FEATURING  KELECHI UBOZOH – Every day more than a hundred Americans take their own lives. More than a quarter of Americans over the age of 18 years experience depression. We have a mental health epidemic and yet the resources to support those struggling with it are constantly dwindling. Patients are prescribed antidepressants and/or end up being criminalized.

Now, a growing movement of people directly impacted by the mental health crisis are demanding a radical new approach that transforms how we think about the issue and challenges the conventional bio-medical framework that marks our discussions.

Kelechi Ubozoh, Nigerian American singer, writer, mental health advocate and co-editor of the new book, We’ve Been Too Patient: Voices From Radical Mental Health.
